The procedure: Cut 3 large potatoes into thin slices. I prefer to use raw potatoes. But if you were to use bolied and cubed potatoes, it is fine too. Wash and chop 1 bunch methi (leaves only) finely . Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add tempering ie 1 tsp mustard seeds, a pinch of asofoetida, 1 tsp turmeric powder, 1 tsp red chilli powder, 2 tsp chopped garlic. Add potatoes and cook covered for 3-4 mins. Now add methi. Stir, cover and cook for another 5 - 8 mins till potatoes are soft. Add 2 tsp sugar and salt to taste. Cover and cook for 3-5 more mins on low heat. Yummy Methi Batata bhaji is ready to serve!!
I have not used any masala in this vegetable because I like to enjoy the natural flavor of methi with the Potato. If you like, you can add 1 tsp of garam masala. Do try out this simple recipe and send in your comments.
