Chicken kasoori methi is a lip-smacking chicken curry which is best served with paratha or naan. This korma style chicken kasoori methi has become our family obsession lately thanks to our new-found love which is nothing but kasoori methi!
Life is all about discovering new surprises and re-discovering old ones and get mesmerized with all the good things that life has to offer us. This was the exact thought that came into my mind when I made my chicken kasoori methi for the very first time. Trust me, I am not exaggerating my feeling at all. Some dishes make such significant mark on your taste buds that you can’t help but fall in love with it over and over again and same is the case with my chicken kasoori methi. This chicken kasoori methi is a korma style chicken curry recipe but honestly, that description does no justice to this dish! My chicken kasoori methi is a soul-stirring delicacy which you need to relish slowly, closing your eyes and adoring every moment of it like that melodious song of 90’s with classical music at the background. It is truly a royal affair. The creamy chicken kasoori methi curry has a unique taste of its own thanks to the miracle ingredient as well as our new-found love called kasoori methi!
Kasoori methi is nothing but dried fenugreek leaves and is a popular aromatic in North Indian cuisine. I was aware of it but wasn’t a frequent user until recently when I accidentally rediscovered the unique deliciousness it adds to any dish and particularly to this chicken kasoori methi. This is different from methi chicken which uses fresh methi i.e. fenugreek leaves and that tastes quite different from this chicken kasoori methi. Here the kasoori methi is added at the very end of the cooking process and you do not need to cook it any further; the remaining warmth of the curry will bring out all the flavors from the dried fenugreek leaves and infuse the korma style chicken curry with an outstanding aroma which is so unique to kasoori methi that you can never forget it neither can it be replicated with anything else.
