4 cups of fresh tightly packed methi leaves
12-15 baby potatoes
1 or 2 green chilies chopped
1 onion diced
1 tomato chopped
1/4 tsp turmic powder
1/2 tsp cumin seed crushed
½ tsp red chili flakes
butter or any vegetable oil
salt as required
remove the leaves from the stems of the methi leaves. rinse the leaves thoroughly in running water. see that the leaves are clean. now chop the methi leaves.
I used baby potatoes, keep the skin on.
saute the onion for some minutes till they start looking crisp and are lightly browned. add the tomato.
add the chopped green chilies and stir. Then add potatoe and fry well.
now add the chopped methi leaves. stir very well.
add salt. give a nice stir and let the methi leaves cook on a medium flame uncovered.
the methi will start to leave water. lower the flame and cook them for 5-6 minutes more.
you should see the leaves wilted and cooked completely. the liquids should dry up. continue to saute for 2 to 3 minutes more once all the water has dried up. some oil should release there should be no moisture in this dish.
if you see that the potatoes are not cooked and the water has dried, then sprinkle 2-3 tbsp of water, so that the potatoes get cooked. when the veggies are done and if there is any water left, then dry the water. the end dish should be dry and not watery.
when the aloo methi is done, you could add some more butter and mix it with the veggies. serve the aloo methi with parathas or rotis & Enjoy!!

Saada Paratha

2 cups whole-wheat flour
Water to knead the dough
1/2 cup ghee
Dry flour for dusting
Knead the flour with water into a soft pliable dough. Cover the dough and leave to rest for at least 30 minutes.
Break dough into 8 pieces, and shape each into a round, smooth ball, using a dusting of flour if it sticks.
Take a ball, and using a rolling pin, roll it into a round.
Smear the surface of the round with a little ghee, fold in half, smear the surface with ghee again, and make another fold from corner to corner, thus making a triangle.
Roll the triangle as thin as you can with a light hand. Repeat with the rest of the pieces, keeping the rolled paranthas covered, while you work on the rest of the dough.
With enough practice, you will be able to work fast enough to roll one and fry the other at the same time.
Heat the griddle till very hot. Place a parantha on it and lower the heat a bit.
When the edges start lifting slightly, make a trail of ghee along the outer edge of the parantha, so that some ghee trickles under it.
When underside is golden brown, smear some ghee on uncooked surface, increase heat and turn the parantha over.
Lower heat and cook on the other side. Serve hot
