Methi Chicken / Chicken cooked with Fenugreek leaves & my 2nd and 3rd Awards!

This post is long overdue though I was supposed to work on it few weeks ago.  As the famous saying goes, It is better late than never to have posted at all…isn’t it?

I sincerely want to Thank Preeti from Indian Kitchen for her sweet gesture in sharing with me the Liebster award.  She is such an enthusiastic girl that every day I see her posting so many recipes…I keep wondering where in the world does she have the time to do it?  Because I know it takes hard work and dedication to do so much and keep at it at the same time without getting bored or tired of it.  That shows how passionate she is about her blog! Please do check out her blog and see yourself!

Thanks Preeti  a.k.a PT for your wonderful recipes and your tireless attitude J

I am really honored and humbled by the kind gesture of my new blogger friend Tisa from Blessings from my Kitchen for showering me with my third award …i.e., AWSOME BLOGGER AWARD!  I know it takes a lot to deserve such an appreciation and am bowled over to receive this award for my little space.  In fact Tisa’s blog is such an inspiration to me that I adore her Blog from her title and her style of writing and her versatile recipes with amazing pictures.  Please do visit her blog and I am sure you will love all of it too!

Thank you Tisa Maam for sharing this award with me J

To celebrate the award ceremony I would like to present this delicious Methi-Chicken which is one of my favorite combinations.  I usually experiment with different combinations to make our mealtime enjoyable so that it does not get boring J. I love the taste of Methi leaves cooked with chicken. It makes a perfect combo with hot rotis/chapattis. So without much ado, here goes the recipe ………….

Ingredients required:

Chicken 500 grams
Methi / Fenungreek leaves ½ bunch – cleaned and chopped
Pudina/Mint leaves a handful – cleaned and chopped
Ginger / garlic paste 1 tbsp.
Onions 2 finely chopped
Tomatoes 2 finely chopped
Red chili powder 2 tsp – adjust according to your taste
Green chilis 2-3 slit (omit if you don’t like it too spicy)
Dhaniya/Coriander powder 2 tsp
Turmeric powder ½ tsp
Garam masala 1 tsp
Oil 1 tbsp
Cilantro/Coriander leaves a handful
Salt to taste

How to prepare Methi Chicken:

1.      Clean and wash the chicken pieces
2.      Heat a thick bottomed pan/Kadai, add oil. Once hot, add chopped Methi leaves and sauté for a minute to remove the bitterness.
3.      Then add onions and sauté again till they turn translucent. Add ginger garlic paste and stir and don’t let it burn.
4.      Now add Mint leaves, turmeric powder, chili powder and dhaniya powder and give a stir.
5.      Add washed chicken pieces and little salt and cook covered for 10 minutes. You can add a cup of water if you need more gravy.
6.      Add chopped tomatoes, garam masala powder and chopped Cilantro to the half cooked chicken and add little more salt if required, stir again and cook covered for another 10 minutes or till the chicken is cooked well.
7.      Garnish with Cilantro and serve hot with steamed rice or some hot rotis/chapattis.

So take good care of yourself and ponder over few lines given below! J

Points to Ponder:
The heavens declare the glory of God;
the skies proclaim the work of his hands.
Day after day they pour forth speech;
night after night they display knowledge.
There is no speech or language;
where their voice is not heard.
Their voice goes out into all the earth,
their words to the ends of the world.
In the heavens, He has pitched a tent for the sun,
which is like a bridegroom, coming forth from his pavilion,
like a champion rejoicing to run his course.
It rises at one end of the heavens, and makes its circuit to the other;
nothing is hidden from its heat.
Psalm 19 : 1-6

This is the description of just one of God’s creations by the Psalmist. Look around; and see the beauty of his creations!! Each one of it, is so unique in its own kind. The plants, flowers, birds, sea creatures, our whole universe…all of them speak of his awesomeness.  But what are we human beings doing to proclaim the awesomeness our creator in spite of being created in His own image???
