I recently had Methi Chicken at a restaurant and wanted to try it out at home. Today I prepared Menthi chicken after consulting my goto guru a.k.a google.

Methi chicken is a simple and tasty curry where chicken is cooked with Methi/Fenugreek leaves along with Curd. Methi leaves bring a very nice & distinct flavor to the dish.

If fresh methi is not readily available, we can also use dried methi/fenugreek leaves. Dried Fenugreek is also called Kasuri methi
