Murg Methi Malai ( Chicken with fenugreek and creamy sauce )

Chicken is loved by almost all the non - vegetarians . It can be prepared in various ways and the list is endless.

 I also always end up making chicken in different ways as my family loves variety in food and there are only very few chicken recipes which I repeat again and again in my kitchen.

 One being this Murg Methi Malai and the other one is malwani-chicken-sagoti . As both the recipes are thoroughly enjoyed in my house.

Murg Methi Malai is a very flavorful dish with lovely aroma of methi and since it is very mildly spiced it is loved even by the kids. They just love the creamy texture and couldnt help but ask for more.

The chicken gets finished in no time along with the healthy methi which is full of calcium ( and which usually the moms try feeding their children without any success)

Try this unbelievably simple and tasty dish once and you will know what I am saying .

This dish tastes better with roti varieties rather than rice.
