Hey guys, here is a lip-smacking, super easy and yummy Chicken curry with Kasuri Methi. Please try, comment, like, share & SUBSCRIBE to my channel Curry for the Soul on YouTube for more such easy and delicious recipes.

This Chicken Kasuri Methi dish is my family's favourite and a hit among my friends at parties.

The freshly roasted aromatic spices along with cashew nuts makes a silky smooth gravy and the star ingredient is 'Kasuri Methi' (dried fenugreek leaves which are available everywhere throughout the year.

When you dry roast the dried fenugreek leaves and when you crush and add them to the curry, it gives an exotic smoky flavour to the chicken dish.

I have used chicken thigh fillets which does not need any marination as it is cooked along with the ground spices.

It is a quick and easy dish yet tastes divine. I bet you love it!!!

You can have it with naan, roti or even rice.
