Aloo Kasuri Methi | Potatoes with Dried Fenugreek Leaves
It is the last week of the year and as it goes every year, this year also seems to have passed way too quickly. I was almost not going to post anything in between all the festivities and vacations, but decided against it. My final week for BM for the year is Redo old posts and this is one of the themes that I enjoyed the most this year. I was able to go back and fix many of my old posts which were in absolute need for new pictures. My first post for this week is this delicious Aloo Kasuri Methi | Potatoes with Dried Fenugreek Leaves.
This is a curry that I make very often, but have never gone back and taken new pictures of. My husband who is a big support for my blogging, went back and wrote down the names of many recipes that needed fixing. Some posts had bad pictures and some were messed up during the migration from blogger to WP. I have slowly been going down the list and fixing as much as possible.
