Notes

  • You can replace curd with a beaten egg. But it does smell a little after cooling. If you are ok with it go ahead.
  • Always use thick fresh curd which is not sour for marinating.
  • You can pre-prep and store the marination in the refrigerator for around 2 days. The longer the marination time juicier the chicken will be.
  • Always use fresh boneless chicken pieces foe better taste.
