Process: The whole process of preparing this is very easy and actual preparation time is less than 30 minutes. You might need little more time to marinate the chicken. You may marinate the chicken any time of the day and then actual preparation should not take more than half an hour.
- Chop the onions and green pepper into medium pieces. The onion and green pepper pieces should not be too small or not too big. Also chop the green Chilli into small sizes.
- Take the chicken pieces into a bowl and add yogurt, salt, ginger and vinegar. Mix it well and marinate the mixture for at least 2 hours. If you keep the chicken for more than two hours, it is not going to harm anything. But it is better to cook that chicken within next six hours.
- Make the dry Methi Kasoori leaves as powder.
- Put little vegetable oil in a dip frying pan and add Methi Kasoori seeds when oil is hot enough. And immediately add the marinated chicken also.
- Try to cook the chicken in low flame with a cover for 10 minutes.
- In another pan add some oil and fry the onions and green pepper together until onions are little brownish. This onion and pepper should not be a complete fry.
- Now add this half fried onion and pepper to the chicken and also add the coriander powder & red Chilli powder. Add one tablespoon of sugar.
- Cook this whole thing in covered condition and in low flame for 8 to 10 minutes.
- Open up the cover and add Methi Kasoori (Fenugreek) powder you made earlier.
- Serve the preparation with little grinded black pepper.
