  3. Hi Aarthi,

    you are using chili always with stem. Is there any reason. anyway let me try and let you know the result.


  4. Have been following your recipes with great interest, and have tried out a few successfully. Keep up the good work! My question: Can I use store-bought ginger-garlic paste instead of ginger paste and garlic paste separately?


  5. @AnonymousNo reason..Just laziness..You can remove it

  6. Hi Aarthi

    Should we marinate chicken in fridge for 2-3 hrs?? r we can mix everything n jus fry

  7. @Ashwini DhanasekarYou can just fry, no problem..but marinating makes it more flavouful and allow the masala to penetrate into the chicken

  8. Is there any reason to add the rice flour?can we do without it?

  9. Hey aarti.Mouth watering dish!Just one question - won't curry leaves add a pungent taste to the dish?

  10. Tomorrow I'll try this aarthi aunty thanq so much for sharing
