Well hello, Methi Aloo with Peanuts – Methi Bhaji. You are exactly what I crave for dinner after a long day. Who doesn’t love potatoes? You can bake them, fry them,  there’s nothing better than a well-seasoned iteration of a potato. This time, we’re mashing them. And not only are we mashing them, we’re loading them up with fenugreek leaves also known as methi.

What Ingredients do I need for Methi Aloo with Peanuts – Methi Bhaji?

Potatoes, fresh methi leaves, onions, serrano peppers, oil, cumin seeds, salt, and roasted peanuts. 

Prep –

Rinse and boil potatoes. I use  Yukon Gold to make Methi Aloo with Peanuts – Methi Bhaji. Add potatoes to large pot of boiling water and cook for 30 minutes or until fork goes through the potato easily. Additionally, you can also use the instant pot to boil the potatoes. (8 minutes’ manual for diced potatoes). Further using a potato masher or hands coarsely mash the potatoes for a few seconds. They dont need to be mushy and they should hold their shape.


Additionally, roast the peanuts in the microwave for 1 minute. Take them out, mix them and roast them again for an additional minute. If they are still raw you can microwave them for another 30 seconds. Alternatively, you can dry roast them on a pan on medium heat. Further, using a grinder, grind the peanuts coarsely for about 5 to 8 seconds. Make sure they are not ground super fine.

Rinse and chop the onions, methi leaves, and serrano peppers finely. Methi leaves also known as Fenugreek leaves are easily available in Indian grocery stores.

Cook-

When you are ready to cook, in a large, heavy-bottom skillet, heat oil over high heat. Second, add in cumin seeds. Further, add in onions, and serrano peppers. Let the onions saute until golden brown and keep stirring intermittently. Furthermore add in the methi leaves and stir. Let the methi leaves cook for a few minutes until they shrivel. Moreover, once the methi leaves shrivel a bit add in salt and stir.

Next add in the potatoes and stir. Let it saute for a minute. Additionally, add in the peanuts and lower the heat to low. Let it cook until all the water dries out. Methi tends to give out its own water. Serve with roti or naan.
