is this using dried methi leaves or ground methi?

"1 lvl tsp methi" - it sounds like Blade might mean powder doesn't it (which sounds like quite a lot)? 

Personally, I'd much prefer to use crushed dried leaves.

What did others used when they tried this recipe?
Regards,

CA :)

Yep. Tried the leaves and in my opinion it was great. I usually use a yoghurt mix but this was extremely tasty. My other half thought it was too sharp (maybe heavy handed with the lemon juice) but I liked it. 10/10!

mmmmmm this sounds absolutely the BUSINESS!!! i have the chicken marinating in the fridge atm, it should have had its 24 hours by tomorrow night when it will be time for CURRY FRENZY! CT and chicken dupiaza with pilau rice, tarka dhal, peshwari nan and popadoms with pickle. B*lls to queueing 5 deep at the bar and dodging flying fists and vomit, this is the way to see in the New Year!

I used crushed dried leaves - not crushed quite as far as powder - but much smaller bits than straight out of the packet.

If anyone knows an Indian restaurant which serves better-tasting chicken tikka than this, please let us know.

I made a big batch of this today.....or rather I should say I set out to make a huge batch of this today but the kids came home just as I was setting my stall up and I used pataks madras paste by accident ::) (I thought it looked a bit dark) anyways not wanting to chuck out a whole load of chicken I cooked 'em up and it was still very nice indeed :D I'll be making a batch following the right recipe tomorrow 'cos my daughter loves CT wraps for her packed lunch but this batch is just too hot :o

A very nice tasting error  :D I can't wait to try it out properly ;D
2 indian junkies accidentally snorted curry powder instead of cocaine. Both were rushed to hospital ...one's in a korma, the other's got a dodgy tikka ;D

I did a batch of this on Thursday, and cooked it Friday night ... simply outstanding - nothing more to add  ;D
I've seen the future and it's served with rice !!!
