Notes

The original recipe uses hot water, instead of coconut milk. Also, the recipe calls for vinegar which i didnt use. If you want to add vinegar, add ½ tbsp while grinding the masala, make sure you adjust the qty of water accordingly.

You can deep fry the chicken pieces if you prefer, also the consistency of the curry can be adjusted to suit your requirements. If you prefer a gravy type dish, cook for a shorter period of time, after adding fried chicken pieces to the gravy.

Curry keeps well in the fridge for 2-3 days
