Aloo Methi Curry (Potato and Fenugreek Leaves)

Aloo Methi Curry (Potato and Fenugreek Leaves)
A simple and healthy side dish for chapati/naan. Methi and potato is a wonderful combo. Usually I make a dry stir fry version. I used malai/cream in this recipe but it is optional.

Potato - 2 medium
Frozen peas- 3/4 cup
Fenugreek leaves- 1 cup washed and roughly chopped
Onion- 1 medium
Green chilly-2
Ginger garlic paste- 1 1/2 tsp
Tomato puree- 1/3 cup
Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 1 tsp
Chole masala- 1 tsp
Cumin powder- 1/4 tsp
Heavy cream- 1/4 cup
Cumin seeds- 1/4 tsp
salt to taste

Cut potato into cubes. Cook potatoes along with green peas, turmeric, green chilly and salt and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds. When it splutter add chopped onion and salt saute for a minute. Add ginger garlic paste and saute till raw flavor disappears. Next add tomatoes and cook for two minutes. Finally add all the spice powders, chole masala (or you can use garam masala ) and the chopped methi leaves. Stir fry for two minutes and add the cooked potatoes Adjust consistency by adding warm water. Allow this to simmer in medium flame. Just before taking off from stove add the cream and mix well. Serve with chapati/poori.

Hope you will all enjoy!
