Methi Batata nu shaak is delicious daily meal subji.  I have already posted punjabi aloo methi sabji.
Todays recipe is gujarati style of making aloo methi sabji . methi means fenugreek seeds & shaak means vegetable in english & ofcourse batata means potato in english.this is a dry veggie which can be enjoyed with poori ,roti or chapati or even dal chawal
It is traditional kathiyawadi subji especially in winter season.


3-4 medium Potatoes (Bataka/aloo) – boiled & cut in 1 inch cubes
1 bunch methi / Fenugreek leaves (chopped)
1 tsp Lemon Juice

For Seasoning
 4 tbsp Oil
1 tsp rai/ Mustard seeds
1 tsp jeera / Cumin seeds
1 tsp til/sesame seeds
2.5 tsp Ginger- green Chili paste
1/2 tsp sugar
½ tsp Turmeric powder
1 tsp Garam masala

Salt to taste

Method :

Now add ginger-chili paste,sugar and salt according taste.
Cover it and let it cook for 2 minutes

Sugar is completely optional in this recipe, if one is ok with a slightly bitter taste of fenugreek leaves than it will be completely ok to skip it
