Aloo Gobi Methi Tuk or Potato Cauliflower and Fenugreek Leaves Curry is traditionally a Sindhi delicacy. It is a dry spiced curry made by fried potato wedges and cauliflower florets (Gobi).
A unique amalgam of flavors
The dish gets an amazing dash of flavor from the addition of fenugreek leaves (methi) and various spices. The bitter taste of methi is perfectly balanced by the tanginess of chaat masala and amchur (dry mango powder).
Also, the peels of the potatoes are not removed in this dish, which results in crispy delicious fried wedges. It is a very simple recipe and contains no onion or garlic.
Skip deep frying for a healthier version
The traditional recipe for making aloo gobi methi tuk calls for deep frying the potatoes and cauliflower florets. To make it healthier, I have just shallow fried the vegetables. You can also steam the vegetables till they are half cooked and then fry them.
The use of cauliflower enhances the nutritious value of this dish, which combined with the various health benefits of fenugreek leaves (methi) make this a great healthy option for a meal.
