Aloo Methi Tuk

Aloo Methi Tuk is a recipe I found in the Sindhi section of Tarla Dalal's Swadisht Subziyan book. I had made it a long time ago. We loved it. I never made it since cause the recipe calls for deep frying the potatoes. Then a few days ago, I decided to try baking them.

For those of you who do not know, I am scared of the oven. Not just in making cakes and stuff, even simple things scare me. But thankfully, me baking some potatoes did not cause the world to come to a stop. And we got to enjoy some awesome potatoes and methi


Baby Potatoes around 20
Methi 1 bunch
Cumin 1 tsp
Hing little
Ginger 1 inch piece
Green Chilli 1
Coriander Powder 1 tsp
Cumin Powder 1/2 tsp
Oil and Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

1. Cut the baby pototoes into 2 or 3 pieces (depending on the size). Spread them in a baking pan. Drizzle a little oil and add salt to it. Toss well  and bake in an oven @ 200C (400F) for 30 minutes turning in between.

2. Separate the leaves of Methi. Very finely chop the ginger and green chilli (or make a paste)

3. Heat oil in a pan. Add the Cumin, Hing, ginger and green chillies.

4. When it starts to sizzle, add the leaves. Saute till it shinks well.

5. Add the powders and cook for a minute.

6. Add the baked potatoes and toss well.

Serve with some dal and roti or paratas.

Today's dal was just Tadka dal. I added a dollop of yogurt to it. It gave a nice twist to the dal and we loved it. Do try it.
