This Methi Chicken is one of my go-to recipes when I want to cook a simple, wholesome non-vegetarian meal for my family. The basic recipe for this dish is my Mother’s so I know it is good as I grew up eating it. The fresh Methi (fenugreek) leaves add a lovely, earthy flavor to this dish. You can also use dried fenugreek if you don’t have access to fresh leaves and you should be able to find both fairly easily in any grocery.

Goes great with plain rice, salad and Raita. If you thicken the gravy, it tastes just as good with hot, freshly made Chapatis.
