Wow the curry was awesome...just that i made a few changes..i added green chilles to make the dish even spicier and added capsicums too...it tasted great,the curry tasted good with chapathi as well as puttu.Try it folks...its a dish worth trying.
it was tasty
Kudos to Thrupti Shetty! The chicken curry is boiling in the pot and it looks and smells great! (haven`t tasted yet though! but I`m sure it will be great!)
nopes...you can use any oil u want ...even ghee...
for added flavour marinate the chicken in a mixture of yogurt,ginger-garlic paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder and salt ...for atleast two-three hours...just to add more taste into the chicken
I tried it,it was good.I didnt have mustard oil so used achaar ka oil.Will mustard oil make a difference?
My husband loved it.
kalaonji are onion seeds ...well to be frank i make this dish without them at times.....doesn`t make much difference ...so don`t worry...hope u enjoy the dish ...keep ur feedback coming...thanks
Kalonji is also called nigella or onion seeds. it looks fine black gravel and is nit the same as shah jeera or caraway.
Kalaunji is Black Caraway Seeds or Sajeerakam in malayalam or black cumin seeds. Hope that helps!
To Be Frank The Dish Taste"s Very Good, But Still TRUPTI has not Come Forward To Explain Or To Define What Kalunji is, Inspite Of Various Food Lovers Has Requested For,Hope We Can Expect It In Glossary Category Very Soon.
