Methi Murg | Fresh Fenugreek Leaves Chicken | मेथी मुर्ग

I would call fenugreek as the state vegetable of Maharashtra. I think this is one leafy vegetable which is cooked in one out of every three kitchen in Maharashtra . Not only it is available in plenty but also full of fragrance when cooked. Cooking Vegetables with meat is trendy these days. Well in the state of Odisha where I was born, you can even find fish and vegetable cooked together, like chencheda mahura etc.

Chicken being my favorite meat, I decided to prepare chicken with methi leaves this time.  I can never get bored of chicken. Did you know I was even popular in my class during my graduation as ChickenKali . I still need to figure out who and how I got that name.

What You Need:

1 500 gm chicken
2 2 cup methi leaves
3 3 chopped onions
4 4 big tomatoes chopped
5 2 green chilies

9 ½ cup curd
10 1 tsp cumin seeds
11 Salt to taste
12 2 tbsp oil
13 10 garlic pods crushed
14 ½ inch ginger crushed
15 1 tsp garam masala

Steps To Make:

Heat oil in pan. Add cumin seeds. Add chopped onion. Add ginger garlic paste and turmeric powder.
Cook till onion is well cooked.
Add chopped green chilies, chopped tomatoes, red chili, coriander powder and garam masala.
Add beaten curd and cook for 5 minutes.
