Methi Chicken with Pilau Rice

Rated 2/5 from 3 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.

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