  • Chicken need not get marinate.Here i marinated with salt and turmeric because i stored in refrigerator.If it is fresh you can directly add.
  • Chicken with big pieces along with bones is good for this recipe
  • The spiciness should come with fresh grounded ginger garlic paste,green chilis & whole garam adjust according to it.
