Punjabi Aloo Methi

I love the combination of these 2 veggies and it tastes really well with fulkas and paratha. You can also add fresh curd before having it. At home my mom does not add onions and garlic still it tastes delicious. According to studies fenugreek helps to reduce cholesterol level,Reduces risk of heart disease,Controls blood sugar levels,Aids digestion,Helps counter acid reflux or heartburn,Helps you lose weight and many more. So include it in your diet with this recipe.
