  1. Grind all the ingredients mention under the list to grind.It will still have some coarse texture.
  2. In a large bowl dump in this mix,add salt,coconut oil and cornflour put the cleaned and drained chicken in it and marinate it at least for 2 hours,(If you feel like you need more cornflour go for it)
  3. In a kadai pour oil and when its hot enough fry curry leaves and take out.Then add chicken and fry it on medium high heat until its done.(Cover and fry for first few minutes,so that it will cook fast)
  4. When its done garnish with fried curry leaves and serve hot.Don’t forget to squeeze in some lemon juice!

Note:If you can handle the heat add 1 more tsp chilly powder,the recipe calls for 3 tsp chilly powder(but 2 tsp was fine for me)
