Kasoori Methi Chicken with Sour Cream & A Short Break!


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 ;)

    2. Where did you manage to buy dried fenugreek leaves exactly? I don't think I could spare the time to hunt for exotic spice ingredients so I would really appreciate some directions. Thanks.
