Vrat ke aaloo – methi

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 withΒ 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😊

    1. 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.

  1. 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.

    1. Katy, thanks a lot πŸ˜ŠπŸ™‚
      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!!
