Tangy Methi Chicken Recipe


‘Methi’ (Dried Fenugreek Leaves) is North Indian Cuisines answer to parsley! Widely used in plenty of vegetarian and non- veg dishes. Strongly Aromatic and slightly bitter : a little goes a long way.  I don’t believe you can be on the fence with this one. You either love it or you don’t much care for it. I love it. My husband does not.

But I am telling you, If you like the flavor of Methi – this is the Methi Chicken dish for you. It is without doubt one of the easiest dishes to prepare with just a few ingredients. It’s Tangy and herby and succulent.
