Lovely recipe ! The first time I made it I forgot to add the cardamom powder to the marinade...it came out well anyways. The second time I added it as required and that made a huge difference indeed. That flavor is what made it into an authentic kerala chicken curry. As soon as u open the lid of the dish a couple of hrs after its made, the aroma of fresh ground cardamom tickles yr olfactory senses :) and its sooo good. Need I say abt the flavor then ?!
