    Very nice, Purabi! Being South Indian, I haven’t cooked much with kasuri methi but just discovered its wonderful flavor this year! I’m sure that this would be nice in a vegetarian version with some seitan. Thanks for sharing!

    Ohh this chicken looks so yummy! I had never heard of fenugreek until breastfeeding my kids. LOL. I was taking the breastfeeding herbal tea with fenugreek in it (I wonder if this dish would have helped… I rather want to eat this than herbal tea!). India offers so many spices and herbs and I learn a lot from reading your recipe. Like you said, it’s really fun! It was nice reading your facts. I want to comment each one but it’ll be too long, so just want to say I’m very similar to you. Hey when you learn Mandarin, please teach me. Since my last name is Chinese now I should learn the language. Heehee. Congrats on the awards and thanks for passing them to me!

    Your curry sounds and looks delicious! I love Indian food and have experimented some in the kitchen, but I’m glad to find an authentic source! Thanks for the tip on the fenugreek leaves as well–good to know. I have yet to find a great Indian grocery here in Chicago, but being such a big city, I’m sure they’re out there–it’s just a matter of searching.

    August 2, 2011 @ 12:03 am

    Purabi, congratulations on your award winning blog, with good reason! I appreciate how you explain your methods and agree with you that timing and introduction of ingredients is key. Will have to search out fenugreek (probably on-line — haven’t seen anything close to that around here; maybe in the bigger cities!) and was also wondering if I could make my own cashew paste by pulverizing fresh or roasted cashews in a blender? This dish sounds wonderful!

    Hi purabi. How have you been. Looks like my timing perfectly coincides with your award giving ceremony. Congrats from me Wan Maznah of Cooking varieties to all the award recipients. You are indeed the lucky ones, if you are being chosen by purabi, the great chef in Indian cuisine
    The murgh-kasoori-methi-chicken looks very delicious from the great images and sounds very flavorful by the the way you meticulously explain the culinary art of preparing this dish.. a must try for me, thanks purabi

    Purabi this dish is over the top. The list of ingredients makes my mouth water and I love how absolutely thorough you are with your instructions. I can’t wait to try this. My sister will be in town later this month and she’ll love this.

    I also enjoyed reading about you. I think its great that your going to try and learn Mandarin and I would agree, nothing is more satisfying than feeding or helping those children in need.

    My children are grown now, my daughter turned 22 today and I just posted my memories with them and cooking with them over the years on my blog. Time flies. How old are yours?

    Thank you for sharing this!

    What a great recipe Purabi! I have kasuri methi in my pantry, so I am bookmarking this dish and will try it out. I am always looking our for new Indian recipes as we all love Indian food (my husband is Indian) at home. 🙂

    Thank you soooo very much for passing on the award to me! I am so honoured! <3 <3 <3

    It was great to read more about you, I always find this the best part about awards… so you get to know your fellow bloggers a bit more! I too love Thai cuisine!


  27. Lilly
    August 2, 2011 @ 10:24 am

    Purabi, first of all this chicken dish looks fabulous! I can’t wait to try it with some homemade naan.

    And of course congratulations on the awards! I am so honoured that you are passing them on to me. My first award ever!! Since I am kinda new at this, maybe you can let me know how things work.

    I love that you want to learn Mandarin! It seems very difficult! And if you have some raw mangoes…
    please send some my way!

    This looks so flavourful. I am not sure where I could find fenugreek leaves around here. Maybe the big asain market might carry them!

    First of all, thank you for such nice comments! I really appreciate each one of your precious time spent here for reading my blog and appreciating the same! Do leave your footprints again!!

    Ushnish kaku, thanks for your motivating comment!

    The Mistress of Spices, sure, this will work well with the vegetarian version as well, with some alteration in the amounts of ingredients! Thanks for the comment.

    Junia, thanks dear! Oh me in Hong Kong? I came last November end. Almost a little more than 8 months now…how time flies!

    Nami, thanks for being such a good bloggy friend! I am so excited to hear that you like reading my blog so much and you are so much interested in knowing about Indian spices/cuisine! Oh yes, fenugreek is definitely recommended for breastfeeding mothers. In India, there are special kinds of balls (called methi ke laddoo)which are a must post-delivery for all these reasons. Fenugreek in more direct forms (as in herbal tea) is much more recommended than the curried ones for health issues. Oh yes, I’ll definitely teach you Mandarin, and you teach me Japanese. Okay?! Thank you and congrats on your awards!

    August 2, 2011 @ 2:18 pm

    jennaseverythingblog, yes, I’m sure all the Indians in Chicago must be going to an Indian superstore. Please let me know when you have found out one!

    Elisabeth, thank you for your kind words!, yes, this is a simple homemade cashewnut paste used in the recipe, made by grinding a few cashewnuts in the electric grinder. The finer the paste, the better and creamier the curry is!

    Wan maznah, thanks for passing the awards to me once again and I am flattered by those words about my blog! Thank you so much and I’d take this motivation as a capsule to serve you with even better content!

    Thanks for your appreciation. I am touched by your comment. My kids are quite small…one is almost 4 and the other is almost of 3 years! Shall surely check out your blog.


  31. purabi naha
    August 2, 2011 @ 2:25 pm

    Thank you, Manu, for your comment. And congrats on the awards part. Yes, the awards make you know more about other bloggers, which is definitely very interesting! Great to know that your husband is Indian (I guessed right!) and you all appreciate Indian food. Do let me know how the dish turned out!

    Carolyn, yes, the Asian market probably would have them. Try showing them a picture of fresh fenugreek leaves (if they do not understand English, as is the case here in Hong Kong wet markets!). Thanks for stopping by!

    I am liking the sound and looks of this curry! I am a big fan of Indian cuisine. But I have not used fenugreek leaves before. Fenugreek seeds, yes.


  36. FamilySpice
    August 2, 2011 @ 4:16 pm

    What an amazing combination of flavors. We use fenugreek in Persian cooking, too, but I’ve only found dried in our Middle-Eastern stores here in the U.S.


  37. Rosemary
    August 2, 2011 @ 4:17 pm

    Like tigerfish, I can find fenugreek seeds (and I’m afraid they’re wasting away in the pantry) but not leaves. I’ll guess I’ll have to order. Because I do so want to try this. Thanks for inspiring!

    wow murg with kasoori methi…I can sniff the aromas of kasoori methi from here…this is my most favoured way of making chciken…and kasoori methi..they have their own magical aroma…

    Thanks Purabi for the award…

    Firstly, congratulations on your awards. I can see why you deserved them! And thanks for sharing your very special recipe with us, just by looking at you photos I can tell how delicious this dish is. Just wondering if I can substitute fenugreek leaves with fenugreek seeds, do they have the same effect?

    So happy to learn that you’re learning Mandarin. My best friend (she’s Bruneian) lives in the NT in HK too with her family!

Congratulations on your well deserved awards. You have an amazing blog here! And I appreciate so much that you have passed them on to me! Thanks you! : )

    Ciao Purabi

    thank you for your visit, now I found your blog and you have some lovely recipes here. I am still learning about Indian cooking so I am very happy to follow you.

    Please visit again, I have just posted about coconut, do you like coconut?

    August 3, 2011 @ 4:07 pm

    I love the spices you are using here. I wonder how it would taste like if I were to substitute chicken for tempeh or firm tofu. Have you tried it?
    Sounds like a good plan learning another language. I took Japanese as a kid. It was fun too bad I didn’t continue. I keep thinking I want to go back to learn it again.

    August 5, 2011 @ 3:05 am

    Hester Casey, thanks for those nice words!

    Thank you, Nava k. Yes, I think the same when I visit your blog too! We indeed have similar tastes!!

    Weirdcombos, yes, tofu, sure will taste good. Better, use Indian cottage cheese or paneer as a substitute, but if doing so, use lesser amounts of spices. Thank you so much for your comment!

    Foodiva, I am afraid fenugreek seeds add a different taste and the leaves cannot be interchanged with the seeds! I am sure, you’ll get these in Asian/Indian stores. You can also order them online!!

    Thanks, all for your comments. Much appreciated!
