Methi Chicken

This is a north Indian dish.With chicken we can make many many dishes…………..This recipe was lying in my diary for a long time………..Once I was checking for a different recipe I got this one…………I made this and it was really good.In the original recipe it was written to fry the fresh methi leaves but that might make the dish sometimes bitter so I used kasoorimethi which gave the curry an excellent taste…………
