Alu Methi is a popular accompaniment that tastes good with any Indian flat bread. It is lightly tossed with spices in a seasoning of fenugreek leaves. I make this dish quiet often; primarily for three reasons, it is easy to make, liked by my family and ideal for those days of no onion -garlic. Yes,it is sans these two ingredients.
