Kasuri Methi, Rajma & Aloo Sabji/ Dried Fenugreek Leaves,Kidney Beans & Potato Curry

A delicious curry is quite enough to enjoy along with rotis or mildly flavoured pulaos. Its always difficult to satisfy everyone's tastebuds at home when its comes for side dish especially to serve along with  rotis. Kids loves protein rich beans and Hubby like potatoes,obviously if am planning to make a side dish either i combine both beans and potatoes or else i will just stick with potatoes. My daughter's favourite bean after chickpeas is Rajma aka kidney beans. She just love this beans in anything, one of my recent trial with my family's favourite vegetable and rajma is this Sabji aka curry. This time i simply dished out this wonderful looking curry with potatoes, dried fenugreek leaves and rajma beans.

Methi, Rajma & Aloo Curry

This dish goes awesome as side dish to relish with rotis or else as curry along with rice or pulaos. You can prepare this curry very easily and its completely vegan. If you dont have rajma, you can make this same sabji with any of your favourite beans. Definitely a simple dish to feed the family easily with protein rich beans.Am running my last week of blogging marathon with Methi dishes as this week's theme. Fresh fenugreek leaves or dry fenugreek leaves are the star ingredient of this week's theme, stay tuned to see my two more dishes with methi leaves.Check out the Blogging Marathon page for the other Blogging Marathoners doing BM#50.
