Vrat ke aaloo – methi ki sabzi is very easy to cook. As the spices added are mild, this vrat ke aaloo – methi (sabzi with potatoes and fenugreek leavesfor fasting days) is ideal for kids and those who are sensitive to spices. I don’t use white salt in food during some specific days of fasting. Sendha namak/pink salt/ rock salt is used to prepare savoury items. So, for this sabzi also I used sendha namak along with Homemade Kasuri Methi(dry fenugreek leaves) which gave such nice flavour to this that I didn’t miss hot spices.
If you don’t have dry kasuri methi leaves, use fresh fenugreek leaves by adding along with potatoes. As homemade kasuri methi leaves have strong flavour, use them wisely.
But in case if you are don’t like the taste of fenugreek leaves, omit them and continue the whole process with potatoes only. Dry crisp potatoes will be wonderful for your kiddo’s lunch box or else have them with hot pooris for lazy Sunday brunch!!! Your parents or grandparents would be happy to have this less spicy sabzi in their plate😊
Boiled potatoes 3
Kasuri methi 1 tbsp
Green chillies 2
Oil 2 tbsp
Jeera (cumin seeds) 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder 1+1/2 tsp
Sendha namak as per your taste
Amchur (dry mango powder) 1/4 tsp
Fresh coriander leaves 1 tsp
Boil and peel potatoes and heat oil in a pan and splatter jeera.
Mash potatoes in small pieces and add it the pan along with all spices and chopped green chillies. Cover it and let it cook for 10 minutes on sim flame.
Keep stirring potatoes from time-to-time. Potatoes will start becoming crisp from the bottom and their colour will change. After 10 minutes, add kasuri methi, mix it well and again cook for a few more minutes. Just before serving, add finely chopped fresh coriander leaves.

Thank you very much Yogesh for always being part of my posts!!

I agree with Radhika, potatoes are a hit in any form. I still have to check, whether the plant in my garden is fenugreek. But I think it is. I will take a photo and show you.
And I agree with both of you, boiled, roasted, dry sabzi, sabzi with curry, stuffed in paratha or in any vegetable… Potatoes are winner!!
Sure Stella, but you can try by drying a few leaves by roasting … probably the fragrance would be helpful to decide.
Will do … 🙂
That looks delicious. 🙂
I believe, cauliflower is delicious in all varieties Lynette.
Thank you very much 😊
Looks good 😋😋😋😋
Thank you very much 😊
Dear Deeksha, I am learning a new dish about potatoes from you again! I love potatoes, and always want to make different types of dishes with potatoes! thank you.
Dear Oscar, thank you very much 😊
During those days when we want simple light food, then this recipe works very well!
I think that it is very good. I will try it.
Thank a lot Aila. If you are fond of less spicy food, then you will sure like it 😊☺️
Yes .This is true. Sure
This brings back memories. My mom used to make this on Tuesdays which was our family’s vrat day.
I always like when whole family keeps vrat… otherwise cooking two different dishes is so annoying.
Yes. We did it as a family. I miss those days.
Looks lovely, Deeksha!!! Do You think using finely minced fresh mango would work as well? Thank You and Huge hugs Your way! 💕
Katy, thanks a lot 😊🙂
Mango sounds good, but I guess raw mango pieces will be better if you like some tangy flavor along with green chillies. Dil leaves, Spinach leaves or simply oregano flavor would be wonderful combo with potatoes!!
My pleasure, Deeksha! And Ok. Nice! Thank You!!! 🤗❤️😊
Thanks for sharing quick and tasty recipies.
You are always welcome dear Subbashini😊
I would love to try these during my navratri vrat💛😁
Love such simple recipes, they bring out a unique flavor of the veggies !
Thank you very much Nisha 😊 ☺️
Healthy and tasty. But when you say ‘easy to cook’ I really don’t know where to look.
“easy to eat” is better for me😊😊
Parneet, bahut bahut dhanyawaad ☺️
Aap to sirf ‘ready dish’ par concentrate kijiye, that’s an easy way to eliminate rest of the stuff😂😂
Thanks a lot 😊
