Aloo Methi Recipe in a Layman's Style

With advanced technologies and developments, the pace of our lives has reached a whole new level where nearly every thing can be done with a simple touch on brilliant electronic devices. But with this increased pace, what else has increased is the lack of attention towards our body and the carelessness in our eating habits.

A wholesome nutrition is certainly very essential for our body and an ideal diet must be balanced with all the sufficient minerals and vitamins. But are we actually having a balanced diet?
I think we all know the answer.

People like me who have a 9-5 job are in such a hurry that we grab almost anything that we find just to hush our starving stomachs. We’re never bothered about cooking ourselves some good nutritional food as we’re too lazy to do that.
Many friends of mine complain of having a series of health issues from having fatigue to headaches and stomach aches. These symptoms are caused due to the lack of nutrients in are diet, one of those which is evidently prominent is undoubtedly iron. Iron plays a very crucial role in proper growth and development of human body. Moreover, it helps in the production hemoglobin and red blood cells. So, it is a must to include good amounts of iron in our daily diet.

Lately, I have got really concerned about my health after hearing to symptoms of various illnesses that people are suffering in my surroundings. So I decided to improve my eating habits by making and opting a list of healthy options and by chucking out unhealthy options from my diet.

My mother has always pointed to me, a few things that are very healthy to eat like cinnamon, garlic, ginger, onion and methi which may not taste very good but they do complement other eatables and on the top of that have great health benefits.
Which reminds me that I am a great fan of aloo methi which is a dish prepared by potatoes and fenugreek leaves.
Fenugreek leaves are not only flavorsome but also have some amazing health benefiting characteristics. Especially being a great source of iron, it serves as a supplement when added to any dish.

So yesterday, I finally decided to cook one of my favorites, Aloo methi with all the above mentioned ingredients and that too in my very own layman's style!

Follow the steps and ingredients mentioned below to know how I prepared it.

Ingredients Used:
  • 1 small bowl chopped potato
  • 1/2 small bowl chopped onions
  • 1 small bowl methi
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon powder
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic
  • 1/4 small sized grated ginger
  • Salt as per taste
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 tsp olive oil

Steps that I followed while cooking this savoury dish:
  1. Pluck out a bunch of fenugreek leaves into the bowl and wash is properly.
  2. Put the leaves into an empty pan for sauté and cover it with lid for 10 minutes.
  3. Now in a separate pan add a tsp full of Olive oil and after oil gets heated add ginger, garlic and cinnamon into it.
  4. Add chopped potatoes and onions along with the mixture prepared above into the sautéed leaves and stir well.
  5. Add salt, pepper and turmeric powder into the pan and cover with lid for another 15 minutes on slow flame after stirring properly.
  6. Turn off the flame and serve it hot with chapatis and curd and you’re good to go
