Frequently Asked Questions
What should I do if there is excess salt in the curry than needed?
If there is excess salt in the curry then do not add more water to balance the taste. Adding more water might change the consistency of your curry. Instead, take a raw potato, peel it and add it into the curry. Let it cook for a few minutes. The potato may soak the excess amount of salt from the curry.
What chicken pieces should I use to prepare Chicken Curry?
A combination of boneless as well as bone-in chicken pieces is ideal for a chicken curry. The boneless pieces make for easy eating once cooked and the bone-in pieces add a flavour to the curry with the juices from the bones.
