aloo gobi methi tuk recipe

i did check this recipe in tarla dalal’s book. but then made my own variations as per the aloo tuk i often make. the original recipe calls for deep frying of the potatoes and cauliflower. i have partly steamed them first and then sauted them later. this is also a no onion no garlic recipe.

aloo gobi methi tuk goes very well with chapatis, phulkas or bread accompanied with a bowl of yogurt or cucumber raita or vegetable raita.

simple food and healthy too. you can also serve it as a side dish with some steamed basmati rice along with sindhi dal or dal tadka or dal fry.

  1. Yet another amazing recipe. I have now made probably a dozen or so recipes from this website and they have all been delicious. This is without doubt the best food website I have found. This recipe is great, the chat masala adds a really nice flavour. Will be making it again (and again).

    • Thanks Izabela for sharing this positive feedback on the recipes.

  2. Hi! I am from the UK and I spent some time in india last year, eating so many delicious foods which we don’t see in our Indian restaurants. I have been following your recipes to try and recreate the dishes I ate at home and having great success. Thanks so much! It’s not easy to get hold of fresh fenugreek here. Could I use the dried kind?

    • thanks a lot kelly. you can use dried fenugreek leaves. but just add 1 to 2 tablespoons of it.

  3. I m having Methi leaves at home and was not in a mood to eat aloo methi or methi paratha..
    dish really sounds tasty I’ll make this today itself and will share my views… hope my husband and daughter likes it 😉

    • sure namita. hope you and your family like the recipe.
