Methi Chicken (Fenugreek chicken)

“People who love to eat are always the best people” – Julia Child.

For me I love to eat and of course, to cook. So here comes my first Food post.

The post is about, the recipe of delicious Methi Chicken (Fenugreek Chicken) an Indian dish I have made last week.

Fenugreek or methi has multiple health benefits, such as, it controls diabetes, maintains cholesterol level, treats bowel problems, cures anemia, helps in weight reduction, cures acid re flux and lot more.


Fresh fenugreek leaves (Methi Shaak)

I have used fresh methi (fenugreek) leaves as well as kasuri methi (dried fenugreek) in this recipe. For the fresh one, only the leaves should be used,not the stalks, as stalks make the food bitter

This quick and easy recipe you can serve with Indian bread or rice of your choice.

Here comes the methi chicken recipe video.
