Aloo Methi Recipe

Aloo Methi is a dry subzi recipe that goes well with both rice and phulkas.I always buy methi leaves whenever I see it fresh to make methi thepla, occasionally I make methi matar malai.I love dry subzis with chapathi more than rice, hubby doesn't complain as he likes it with both.This post is long overdue and was sitting in my drafts so thought to post it today.
