Methi Chicken Curry (chicken with fenugreek) is one of the most fragrant and flavourful curries I make. A rich, distinctive taste that is utterly intoxicating. Learn more about what makes this curry so delicious.
Fragrance is in abundance in this delicious recipe for Methi Chicken Curry. It’s hard to put my finger on the character and taste of fenugreek, but it really is something very special. Floral, herbal and very distinctive. It’s familiar, in that it actually summons the aroma of ‘curry’. I apologise for not being more articulate, but there’s nothing quite like fenugreek. You’ll have to take my word for it when I say it’s a wonderful aroma and taste.
As an ingredient it compliments many other flavours and is present in a myriad of Indian dishes. Chapati bread dough made with fenugreek leaves is one of my favourites, as is my super tasty Mushroom Methi Masala, a quick, vegan mushroom curry. I scatter dried fenugreek over many of my curries, like the delightful Achari Chicken, which adds so much character to the final dish. I love how it makes my hands smell for the rest of the day as I crush it between my palms.
One of the best fenugreek dishes is this methi chicken curry recipe. It utilises fenugreek in three ways and is quite literally the essence of fenugreek! Juicy chicken is bathed in a fragrant sauce unlike any other curry. I always have frozen fenugreek at home and will snap up fresh methi when I see it at the Indian store. You can never have too much methi chicken in your freezer! Learn more about methi below.
