Kasoori Methi Chicken



When you feel like eating methi chicken and when you are out of Methi at home, then what do u do??? Use Kasuri Methi!!!
Its Methi of course, but since its a dried form, its has more flavor than the regular fresh methi leaves.
Well I was getting bored of eating the regular chicken curry, and was thinking what to make....thought of methi chicken...but no methi at home, so decided to make with kasoori methi.
It was quick and easy to make and ended up with no fuss from the kids....everyone enjoyed it!



Ingredients:

1 lb boneless chicken breast, washed and cut into small cubes (I used boneless, but you can use chicken of your choice)
2 onions, sliced
2 tomatoes chopped small
4 green chillis
3/4 cup yogurt, beaten
some water, as required
salt as required
1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
1 tsp chilli powder
1 tsp garam masala powder
1 tsp coriander powder
1 tsp cumin powder
1/2 tsp turmeric powder
1-2 tbsp oil
1/2 cup kasoori methi
1 tsp lemon juice
bunch of coriander leaves for garnish

Method:

Wash and cut chicken. Keep aside.
Heat oil in a pan.
Saute onions, till translucent.
Add the ginger garlic paste and saute again for 30 sec.
Add the chopped tomatoes and green chillies and cook until they are soft and mushy.
Add salt as required.
Add all the powders and saute for another 30 sec.
Add the beaten yogurt and mix well.
Add the chicken pieces and cook until they are well cooked. Add some water if necessary, so that the gravy doesn't become too thick. Add more salt if required.
After the chicken gets cooked, add the kasoori methi, lightly crushed in hand.
Add the lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves in the end.
Serve with rotis, chapathis or rice. Its yummy with any base.
Enjoy!!!

  19. looks so yummy, i do something very similar to this except for couple of changes, No tomatoes and add the Kasuri Methi right at the start to the oil before adding onion or add it later by soaking the kasuri methi in two table spoons of hot water and use just the water. this way the flavor get into the chicken.
