    Dear Aarthi,
    Thank you for the recipe. I live in a vegetarian household, so I substituted chicken with peas & potato and used your masala base. The curry was very tasty ! Loved it ! Your blog is excellent.

    Dearest Aarthi,

    you are the mother i never had, Thank u so much for this wonderful blog, my parents are separated and never had a guiding hand at cooking, i learnt from friends and their mothers cause i didnt want my husband and children to suffer. I got married in march and moved to malaysia, ever since cooking has been hard on me, but with ur step by step instructions it was like a mother's hand guiding me. Thank u so much. Today i tried this chicken curry by myself for the first time and its come out well. Love and wishes from my heart.

    Dear Aarthi,

    I've been lurking in your blog for a while, and today I tried your Onion Chicken and it was fantastic and turned out really well. I don't live in India, and really miss home cooked Indian food, especially Tamilnadu delicacies, thanks very much for such a lovely collection of 'Soul' food!. Your blog is very professional and well laid out. I've been to many south indian blogs before but never subscribed to any and I have for the first time subscribed to yours. Keep up the good work.

    Hi Aarthi,

    You are very talented and patient, well I tried this recipe. I am getting bitter taste after cooking the onion, garlic and tomato ground paste. I wonder why this happened. Any idea to avoid this next time around, would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    @AnonymousIt is not meant to give bitter taste. I am not sure why this happenened. May be something is wrong with the vegetables i think so..Try it again and let me know.

      Generally if you include the "eye" of the onion in blender, depending on the type and intensity of the onion, it could turn bitter. Next time, cut the onion into half vertically and take out the middle portion which is the seed of the onion out and you should be fine.

    Hello, this dish looks amazing.
    Can you please clarify if we need to use the greens or the whites of the spring onions, or both?
