Aloo Methi Tamatar

Recipe with methi leaves again ! We like these leaves so much that family wouldn't mind even if I cook it for all the seven days in a week :)

Began initially with the recipe of aloo methi in mind, but then had tomatoes to be finished from the fridge so have added them besides goda masala. You can omit them [tomatoes and goda masala] and proceed with other steps as mentioned in the recipe.

Baby potatoes about 25- 30 [ cooked them with salt in pressure cooker for 1 whistle] 
Methi leaves 3/4cup washed and cleaned.
Tomato [medium sized] 1  chopped
Onion [medium sized] 1 chopped
Garlic 5-6 cloves crushed and other 5-6 cloves chopped coarsely
Cumin seeds 1 tsp
Mustard seeds 1/2 tsp
Green chilly/ Red chilly 1 [ as per ur preference]
Haldi -1/2 tsp
Chilli powder -1/4 tsp
Goda masala - 1/2 tsp [ U can substitute with garam masala if you don't have goda masala]
Salt to taste


Peel of the skin of baby potatoes and keep aside

Heat oil in pan. Add mustard seeds and cumin seeds, once they splutter add garlic and saute them till they become light brown. Now add chopped onions and chilly, stir well till onions turn translucent. Add haldi, red chilli powder, goda masala. Add methi leaves and cook it till they get wilted. Add tomatoes, baby potatoes, salt to taste and continue to cook it covered for 5- 8 minutes. Take care that the vegetable doesn't get stuck to the base of the pan and so toss it a few times. [No need to add water] 

Switch off the flame and serve hot with rotis or rice.

Note: If you don't have baby potatoes, substitute it with regular potatoes, boil them and dice them into cubes.
