This chicken is one of my favorite easy meals to cobble up together. It was inspired many moons ago, by a meal I put together for a neighbor. In spring, I love to make this with the fresh arugula harvested from my garden, I have found that arugula has a texture similar to methi or fenugreek and also imparts the touch of bitterness that we associate with fenugreek.
If you are using arugula add in a teaspoon of kasuri (dried) methi to impart that characteristic fragrance associated with fenugreek.
4 tablespoons oil
1 small red onion, halved and thinly sliced
1 teaspoon coarsely crushed cumin seeds
1 teaspoon ginger paste
1 tablespoon minced garlic
1 and a ½ pounds of boneless, skinless chicken cut into small cubes
1/2 teaspoon turmeric
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
1 and ½ cups of chopped fenugreek or arugula
1 cup grape tomatoes halved
