Methi nu Shaak

A simple stir fry with fenugreek leaves -

Methi nu Shaak
Fresh fenugreek leaves stir fry
1 1/2 cup chopped fresh methi leaves
2 small potatoes, peeled & finely chopped - approx = 3/4 cup
salt to taste
1/2 tsp sugar
1/2 tsp chili powder
1/2 tsp coriander-cumin seed powder
1/3 cup vada nu loat or besan
1 tbsp oil

1 tbsp oil
1/2 tsp mustard seeds
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp asafoetida
1/4 tsp owa
1 tbsp sesame seeds
2 cloves garlic, finely minced

1 tbsp freshly squeezed lemon juice

1. Heat oil in an iron or nonstick kadai. Add all the ingredients for tempering. As they sizzle, add potatoes and fenugreek leaves. Saute them from time to time, sprinkling little water as needed.
2. Now, add all the powders, salt and sugar to taste. Stir fry till potatoes are cooked.
3. Add vada nu loat or besan. Stir well. This will make the "shaak" extremely dry. Add 1 tbsp oil to mix well.
4. Cover and let it cook for 5 minutes.
5. Switch off the gas. Squeeze some lemon juice just before serving.

Note -
1. The potatoes are chopped very finely like we may chop onions.
