Kasoori Methi Chicken with Sour Cream & A Short Break!

Image
Finally! I got my hands on Kasoori Methi....dried fenugreek leaves! The aroma of these dried leaves gave a twist to my normal chicken curry.

To make the dish extra special, I add light sour cream. Sour cream definitely wonders me! Love it more than yoghurt :)

Sharing my special dish just for you all! Enjoy ;)

Friends, what do you do when you followed a recipe 100% (cook/ bake) but still end up with negative result? Who do you blame, the recipe? The recipe owner? Or yourself? Will you just blame yourself and will  try the recipe again with some alteration or maybe the same?

To be frank, I tried and tested uncountable recipes from the net and cookbooks this far. When some turned out a huge hit, some went straight into the bin! Not a single time I have accused the recipe nor the recipe owner although I'm frustrated because the recipe didn't work too well on me. I would make the dish again and again using the same recipe with minor adjustments here and there...until it suits our taste buds. Gotto tell you that I'm still a novice baker. And I don't mind cooking or baking the same recipes ( if I'm really interested ), atleast until am satisfied.

Now, you must be thinking why am I pointing out this matter today. I just wanted you to know this is ME!!! Do not give up when try…
