I love visiting other people’s blogs and trying new recipes from their blog. My hubby likes to try new non veg dishes. So last Friday I decided to try this Methi chicken recipe from Nisa’s Blog. Kids didn’t like it much, but they ate it. Hubby and I really liked it. I would definitely make it again.Try it and see if you like it. I made few changes so that my family will like it.


  • Chicken: 500 gms
  • Chopped Methi leaves: 3/4 cup
  • Onions: 2
  • Cashewnuts: 2 tbsp (slighly chopped)
  • Tomatoes: 2
  • Ginger garlic paste:2 tsp
  • Salt: 2 tsp or as needed
  • Oil: 4-5 tbsp
  • Onion: 1 sliced
  • Green chilies: 2, slit
  • Kashmiri Chilli powder: 2 tsp
  • Turmeric Powder: A fat pinch
  • Dhaniya powder: 1tsp
  • Beaten Curd: 1 tbsp


  1. Marinate the chicken with ginger garlic paste, chilli powder, dhaniya powder, chilli powder, salt and curd.
  2. Sprinkle some salt over the methi leaves and keep aside for 5 minutes. Squeeze out. In a kadai or pan add in onions and cashewnuts with 1/4 cup water, once it is cooked and cooled down grind to a fine paste with tomatoes, ginger, garlic.
  3. Heat the same kadai with 2 tbsp oil and add in 1 sliced onion, 2 slit green chilies and saute till light brown, add in the squeezed and chopped methi leaves. and mix and saute for 1 minute and then remove it to a plate, keep aside.
  4. In the same kadai heat another 2 tbsp of oil and add in the pureed onion mix. Let it saute for 2-3 minutes on low flame.
  5. Add chicken to the mix. Let the chicken cook by keeping the lid on. Chicken will release water. So don’t add water until chicken cooks fully.
  6. Add in the methi leaves-onion-green chilli (which we sauted earlier). Mix well and allow it to simmer for 1 minute.
  7. Garnish with coriander leaves and enjoy with rice or chapathi.
