Methi Chicken, murgh methi or methi chicken curry is delicious chicken curry with addition of fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves is absolute delicious and a wonderful combination to enjoy during winter when we have ample of fresh methi leaves available. I am starting a new series along with the Millet Friday and this time it's going to be Sunday Non-Vegetarian series where I will post non-vegetarian recipes like egg, fish, chicken, prawn or whatever that I am making.

I was checking my pictures draft and saw quite a few non-vegetarian recipes which I am not able to post for some unknown reason though I always think of posting so I got this idea of starting a series on it so I can regularly post for at least couple of weeks to start with and share all those wonderful recipes with you guys. Starting the series with Methi Chicken as winter special when we can find good methi leaves in market to try this delicious chicken curry.


Methi Chicken is made with fresh chicken and also with kasoori methi though using fresh methi leaves traditional way and it makes the curry so delicious, you won't feel any methi bitterness so don't worry about it. If you like chicken then you should try this and this murgh methi goes well with any pulao, jeera rice, paratha, poori, roti or even with some bread so let's checkout the recipe and yes, I missed to take last few step wise picture like adding curd and the final picture after the curry get's cooked as that day I was cooking a storm for my BIL so don't mind that :)
