Methi Murgh is one of my dad’s recipes which I absolutely love and is so simple to make. As long as you have fenugreek leaves and some chicken you will not have to run to the grocery store, I promise you that.

  • 1 teaspoon fenugreek seeds (omit if not available)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (grated)
  • 1 tablespoon garlic (grated) or use 2 tablespoon ginger garlic paste, though fresh tastes better.

  3. Heat ghee and oil in a heavy bottom pan with a cover. Add chicken. Saute the chicken and cook it under medium heat until its cooked half way through.
