What do you need for methi nariyal murgh or fenugreek chicken curry?

In this Methi Chicken recipe, tender fresh chicken chunks are cooked with assorted spices, coconut milk and dried fenugreek leaves or kasoori methi.

It is known as Methi Murgh Karahi in Pakistan and is one chicken curry that is loved by all.

The oil we use in the methi nariyal murgh recipe is mustard oil. It compliments methi and brings out the best flavour possible.

This fenugreek coconut chicken recipe makes a very flavourful, delicious and creamy chicken curry that goes very well with roti and rice.

Methi Nariyal Chicken Recipe

Methi Nariyal Murgh Recipe or Methi Chicken is really easy peasy to make and it taste good too.

Having said that I, personally, am not really fond of adding fenugreek leaves (dried kasoori methi leaves) to butter chicken but Methi Chicken is something different.

Hence, I prefer butter chicken from Mughal Mahal which is without Kasoori Methi. However, there are purists who call butter chicken without kasoori methi, a blasphemy.

Hmm .. To think of it, I was actually driven to find out how kasoori methi responded with chicken outside the butter chicken environment.

Fenugreek has health benefits too, so do click and read the article.

Having said that, it is true that kasoori methi & chicken do compliment each other really well.

In my Methi Nariyal Murgh Recipe, I am taking humble chicken & even humbler methi to another level. The twist is by cooking it in a coconut milk-based gravy.

The Methi Nariyal Chicken Recipe is absolutely aromatic and goes very well with tawa or tandoori paranthas. If you do try Methi Chicken, do let me know how you fared. :)

Notes

  • Make sure to cook the onions till it is evenly browned.
  • Bhuno the chicken in the gravy before pressure cooking. This allows it to absorb the flavours.
