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

Kalaunji is Black Caraway Seeds or Sajeerakam in malayalam or black cumin seeds. Hope that helps!
