Aloo Chicken with Methi Masala recipe


  • 1 full cup chicken, cubed(small)
  • 1 large potato, de skinned, cubed(small)
  • 3 tbsp yogurt
  • 1 tbsp ginger garlic paste
  • 1 tbsp oil
  • salt to taste
  • For the spice mix
  • 2 tsp coriander powder or 4 tsp seeds
  • 1 tsp cumin powder or 2 tsp seeds
  • 3 tbsp dried fenugreek leaves(Kasoori Methi)
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric

Cooking Instructions

Combine the ingredients mentioned for spice mix and grind them to a fine powder

Combine the spice mix(step 1), yogurt, ginger garlic paste, salt, potatoes and chicken and let it marinate for few minutes.

Heat oil in a large flat pan/skillet, add the marinated mixture and saute on high heat. Keep turning for 5 – 7 minutes.

Sprinkle little water if needed and close the lid, lower the heat to medium and let it cook for 5-10 minutes

Toss and turn so that all the water is evaporated.

Add water if you need a gravy like consistency (I made it as a dry curry/sukka, as chicken and potatoes can just be sautéed without any water as they will be cooked with the yogurt and chicken moisture)

Garnish with cilantro or coriander leaves or ideally with fresh fenugreek leaves!
