Methi Chicken with Pilau Rice

Rated 5/5 from 4 Customer Reviews

Methi chicken is a deliciously fragrant curry from the north of India. The chicken is first marinated in spiced yogurt with the key flavour coming from the fenugreek (methi) leaves.

It’s not a particularly well-known curry ingredient in the west, but gives that really distinctive and appetising scent that you instantly associate with Indian restaurants.

Nice one, Cassie! Happy Spicing!


Good choice of purchasing boxes with several dishes or single dish packets. No added delivery charge at checkout is good and packaging that fits through letterbox helps,

This is a bit watery if done according to the recipe. Would use less yogurt next time.
