Time to add the marinated chicken.
Scrape and add all the leftover curd. Don’t add water just cook on medium heat until the curry starts thickening.

1.You could use boneless chicken or chicken with bones for this dish.
2.If you are allergic to dairy then use nut paste instead of yogurt.

Fenugreek the Natural Herbal Cure for Diabetes and 15 other Health Benefits

Side Effects of Fenugreek:

  • While Fenugreek is generally considered to be safe when used moderately, there have been reports of a few minor side-effects. Nausea is one common side effect, while other people have reported gastrointestinal discomfort (diarrhea and/or gas). Also, when using this herb topically on the skin, it is important to watch out for skin irritations and rashes.
  • Fenugreek use during pregnancy is not recommended, since it has the potential to induce labor. If you are pregnant and wish to take it, you should do so only after consultation with your doctor.
  • If you are currently taking any oral medications, you should always use this herb at least 2 hours before or after these drugs. This is important since Fenugreek fiber has the potential to interfere with the absorption of oral medications due to its mucilaginous fiber (which gives it a moist and sticky texture).
