Methi Aloo (Potato with Fenugreek leaves).


Methi aloo is one of the simplest and easiest dish you would ever come across. Baby potatoes are ideal for this....you can also use ordinary potatoes cut into cubes.


I did not take any step by step pictures because its so easy to make..........
This is a true North Indian dish....my mother-in-law got the recipe some 40 years back when she was living in Haldwani and ever since a favorite subzi in the family.
The best part is there are no onions to  peel and slice.....no tomatoes....no ginger.....no garlic......so I guess this one stands apart!!!
Its a dry dish and leftovers can be stuffed in parathas or samosas.

#If using ordinary potatoes either boil and cube them or cut into cubes and put it soon after the leaves are added and let it cook in the water of the leaves on slow flame.
Ingredients:
Baby potatoes: 1/2 kg, boiled and peeled.
Methi leaves: 2 handful, chopped.
Kashmiri chilly powder: 1 tsp.
Turmeric powder: a fat pinch.
Asafoitida/Hing: 2 fat pinch.
Amchur/Dry mango powder: 1 tsp.
Jeera: 1 tsp.
Oil: 3 tbsp.
Salt as needed.

Method:
1.Heat oil in a kadhai/pan/wok and put in 1 tsp of Jeera and let it splutter.
2. Turn of fire and put in 1 tsp chilly powder, turmeric powder, and asafoitida powder. If you do not turn off the fire, the chilly powder will get burned. Once it is incorporated turn on the fire again and add the chopped methi leaves, add salt. Once the leaves are well mixed add the potatoes. Mix well and let the water evaporate stirring all the way.
3. Reduce the flame. Add 1 tsp of amchur/dry mango powder and mix well to incorporate nicely. Let it fry in low flame for 5 to 10 min...keep stirring on and off.....aloo methi is done!!!

Serve hot with roti/naan/paratha.

Puff Pastry Recipe - Homemade Puff Pastry

Puff pastry recipe : Homemade puff pastry in 15 minutes, can you believe that??  Bakery style  Puff pastry is so easy to make at home that you will never buy greasy bakery puffs. The best thing about this puff pastry recipe is that; it does not need any refrigeration (chilling the dough) or any other so called difficult method, you may see when you google for "puff pastry" Easy puff pastry can be made with the most basic ingredients and in under 15 minutes. Back in the 80's amma started making puffs at home; which my two brothers and myself used to enjoy a lot. She mostly used to make this for special occasions; like when a friend dropped in or when we long for something bakery style. Fast-forward to 2014; my daughter, Nidhi loves puffs and I have been asking amma to teach me how to make and somehow things did not work out when I last visited her. Right now she is visiting us here in Calicut and I coaxed and buttered her to show me how to make puffs. The
