Aloo Methi Sabzi – Rajasthani Delight

Today I am posting Aloo Methi which I made a few days back. Though I have some of recipes left behind, I hardly find time to do the post. Next week we are planning to go to India after about 1 ½ years, I am all excited. I am kind of busy shopping and packing things. Anyway now moving on to the post, Aloo Methi is a Rajasthani delight. It is a very healthy, flavourful, spicy and yummy side dish which goes perfectly with rotis, rice etc.

Here’s how to make Aloo Methi Sabzi with step by step photos…


4 medium sized
1 [finely chopped]
2 – 3  cloves finely chopped
1 inch piece finely chopped
Kasuri Methi leaves/Dry Methi leaves
3 tbsp
Red Chilli powder
1 tsp
Coriander powder
2 tsp
Amchoor powder/Dry Mango powder
2 tsp
Cumin powder
1 tsp
Garam masala powder
½ tsp
Turmeric powder
½ tsp
Mustard seeds
½ tsp
Cumin seeds
1 tsp
2 tbsp
 Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Cooking Time: 25 minutes
Serves: 5-6


Wash, peel and cut the potatoes to small cubes.

Heat oil in a kadai, splutter mustard seeds, then add cumin seeds and wait for a few seconds.

Add the onions, garlic, ginger and saute well until they are light golden brown color.

Now add red chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, amchoor powder, garam masala powder, cumin powder and mix for about a minute.

Add the diced potatoes, mix well and saute for about 2 minutes.

Now add about ¼ cup of water, salt and mix well. Cover it with lid and cook the potatoes for about 15 minutes in medium flame. Stir in between to avoid any burning.

When the potatoes are almost done, add the kasuri methi leaves and mix really well. 

Stir and cook for another 5 minutes. Now switch off the stove.

  • I have used the dry methi leaves[kasuri methi], you can replace it with the methi leaves[vendhaya keerai]. Clean, wash, finely chop them and add it to the potatoes.
  • The amchoor powder is added to balance the bitter taste of the methi leaves. If you do not have amchoor powder, add the tomatoes and saute well after the onions and follow the same procedure.
  • If you do not want to add tomatoes, you can add about 1-2 tsp of lemon juice finally and mix it well.

Delicious and healthy Aloo Methi Sabji is ready to be enjoyed.
