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 ;)
