Alu Methi Fry (Potato and fenugreek leaves fry)

This is simpliest and most common fry in the andhra household. I have blogged two post on potato fry.And out of all the fries this is my favourite.The combo of potato and fresh fenugreek leaves is awesome.This goes well with hot rotis or rice.
Potatoes 500gms
Onions 2 (chopped)
Fenugreek (methi) leaves 1/4 cup
Green chillies 3 (chopped)
Garlic 2 (chopped)
Curry leaves few
Rai 1/4 tsp
Turmeric 1/4 tsp
Red chilly powder 1 tbsp
Salt as per taste
Oil 4 tbsp
Pressure cook potatoes.Peal the skin and mash it with hand.Set aside.
Take oil in a pan.When oil is hot add rai and curry leaves.When rai splutters add onions,green chillies and garlic.
Fry till the onions are light pink in colour.
Now make a well in the pan add chopped fenugreek(methi) leaves and cover it with the onions.
Leave it for 2-3 minutes.
Then saute onions and methi leaves till the leaves changes it colour.Now add turmeric powder and salt.
Add mashed potatoes and mix throughly.Fry for another 2-3 minutes and see that the curry doesn't get burned.
Lastly add red chilly powder and mix throughly.
Serve it with hot rotis or rice.
PS:-I used the big fenugreek leaves as i don't get the small ones which we get in india.This leaves are less bitter compared to the smalls ones.
