Aloo Methi Mattar Sabji (No Onion No Garlic Version)

Share with friends and family

A classic side dish to go as an accompaniment with rotis/naan/puris or even comforting piping hot dal chawal.
The wonderful taste and aroma of sauteed methi leaves with cumin seeds takes the entire dish to a whole new level.
People who dislike methi for its bitterness will start eating methi if you prepare this recipe.
As this does not have any kind of over powering masalas ,even the elderly people who refrain from masala based gravies due to age and digestion issues can enjoy this simple and humble sabji.

Again,this is a No Onion No Garlic recipe,so you can even make it for lunch/dinner get togethers during any kind of Pooja or Satsangs.

Over to the recipe.
