Aloo Methi curry is a popular north Indian side dish. Aloo in any form are kids’ favorite and Methi which I call the wonder herb, has great medicinal values. Well combination of these two will only be healthy. I heard of this recipe on a cooking show and as it was easy to prepare, I didn’t hesitate a moment to try it out. You can’t go wrong with taste if you follow the recipe. Methi and Aloo are easily available ( at least near my place ) so include it in your today’s menu.
