Methi Chicken Kheema

Methi with Chicken is a lovely combination .Cooked in a Curd  based gravy Fresh Methi and Chicken makes a very good dish .I have made Methi Chicken many times . Recently i had brought some fresh Methi/Fenugreek leaves to make some Theplas and Methi Matar but ended up in Making it with Chicken Mince. It tasted amazing .Everyone at home and even my neighbours who tasted it absolutely  loved it .And my neighbour asked me for the recipe too .So thought of posting it.

2 tomatoes chopped
 2 tsp ginger garlic paste
3 green chillies chopped/to taste
 1 tsp dry fenugreek leaves/kasuri methi
