Methi murgh – Chicken Cooked with Fenugreek Leaves

Here I am sharing my post about making methi murgh (chicken cooked with fenugreek leaves). This is a everyday chicken curry made with simple ingredients from the kitchen. I make this on a weeknight too. The recipe is quick and straight forward.  Serve this hot curry with steamy rice or naan or roti.
