Hello All my friends, readers and Followers. I'm back with one more winter delicacy for you. This is my own personal favorite & very much loved and all time favorite lunch box recipe. Before the season end I wanted to share this easy and simple recipe of aloo methi tamatar sabzi.

Aloo Methi is my one of the most loved sabzi particularly winter time. This formula is once more that my mother's recipe and I'm sharing it with no single change. I strongly believe that Aloo Methi Sabzi is very much needed in every winter season.

You know that fenugreek leaves are fresh and best available in this winter season. It is considered as a winter special medicine.  It is the well-suited solution for basic cold because of its solid antiviral properties.

This is very simple and flavorful recipe. This is made up with few ingredients like fenugreek leaves, potato, tomato and Indian spices, which is easily available in our kitchen. Methi or fenugreek leaves is made mostly in all households in some form of vegetable or in paratha's and dal's. It's winter delight at my home.

We usually make methi paratha, dahi methi poori, gujarati style methi thepla.

Even I can make some quick breakfast recipe from it, especially the paratha from it. Mashed aloo methi sabzi, add some salt, red chilli powder, a pinch of garam masala and amchur powder(dry mango powder). Mix it well and used it in your paratha as stuffing and eat with butter of your choice (white or yellow) or great going with curd or tea.

The fenugreek leaves has a bitter punch and that is why we paired with sweet vegetable which balance the bitterness and that we used in our this recipe is Tomato(tamatar). This is great going with roti, paratha, used as a side dish with dal, roti, dahi and side salad.

Tomato imparts a sweet and sour burst and makes the dish look beautiful along with dark green fenugreek leaves and yellow potatoes! Try this simple recipe of methi along with potato and tomato.
