Methi Aloo with Soya Granules

We all make Methi Aloo and you know what that's one of the most favorite dish of Mr. Amitabh Bachhan. I am not kidding. But if I also make same old same old methi aloo what's the big deal. So I added soya granules in it with frozen corn and pigeon peas in it. One of the reason is that my mom used to make methi khema so soya has that texture also and Yes I was missing my mom. Here's the recipe.

2 bunch of methi leaves (clean and chopped, around 3 cups)
1 red onion chopped
1 tomato chopped
1/4 cup frozen corn and pigeon peas (toover dana)
1/4 cup soaked and dry soya granles (you can add chunks too)
1 tbsp chopped garlic and green chili
1 long stick ginger chopped
1 tsp dhania powder
1 tsp chili powder
salt to taste
4 tsp oil (Leaves need more oil)


Heat a pan with oil in it. 
When oil is hot enough add onion in it , cook till it changes color.
Then add Tomatoes, garlic,ginger, green chili and mix it. cook till oil floats on top. 
Add powder masala and mix it.
Now add Methi leaves, corn and peas and soya.
Mix all and cook till water from leaves gone. 
when leaves cook perfectly that time only add salt cause leaves wilt down so you don't want to add salt in the  beginning otherwise it will be salty. 
Serve it with hot chapati, naan or Jeera rice.

  9. So far, I've been using dried methi leaves. The fresh ones; can't seem to find over here. Yet I love leafy greens and am sure it can substituted with other others. The flavors are inviting and its another I'm aiming at for our vegetarian meals.
