Alu Methi

Alu Methi is a popular accompaniment which is used with the Indian bread. It is lightly tossed with spices in a seasoning of fenugreek leaves. II love making this dish  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. Did you like this one? Do let me know.
