Methi Aloo

This dish is one of my all time favorites. Anything that has potato in it, I love and the Methi leaves just take it to another level. This is my Ma's signature recipe.

3 large potatoes (I use the white skin potatoes), chopped into 1" pieces with the skin
2 bunch Methi leaves, washed and chopped roughly. If fresh Methi is unavailable, use frozen
1 green chilli, finely chopped
1" ginger finely chopped
1/2 tsp cayenne powder
1 tsp coriander powder
Salt to taste

Heat oil in pan. Add the ginger and green chilli and cook till the ginger turns golden brown. Add the coriander powder, cayenne powder and salt. Add the potatoes and mix well. Cook the potato is about 80% done. Add the Methi leaves, cover and cook till the methi and potatoes are fully cooked. Keep stirring so that the potato-methi does not stick to the bottom of the pan.
Serve hot with Roti / Paratha and enjoy.
