Aloo-Methi Sabji (Potato-Fenugreek sabji)

5 medium potatoes, cut into small cubes
½ medium onion, finely chopped
2 cubes frozen methi (you could use the fresh leaves)
½ tsp chilli powder
Salt to taste

For seasoning:
1 Tbsp oil
1 tsp mustard seeds
½ tsp urad dal/ skinned and split white lentils
A pinch of asafoetida

Heat oil and add the ingredients for the seasoning followed by the onions. Sauté onions till transparent.

Add the frozen methi cubes and cover and cook for 2-3 minutes till the methi thaws in the pan. (I don’t thaw it separately.) Mix well and add the chilli powder.

Add the cubed potatoes. Cover and cook till tender, 10-15 minutes)

Serve hot with curd-rice.

Potatoes in any form is something I like...the addition of methi sounds interesting.

I've wanted to try this popular combination but always make it with spinach instead... so no need to boil potatoes before hand? That's neat and i guess they don't get smushed that way.
