  1. Seems absolutely fascinating! I like my chicken well cooked and do without groundnut/coconut as a rule but the end result seems like it would taste well. 😀

    1. Though I use coconut in chicken(kerala people can’t cook anything without coconut 😉 ),this is for the first time I am using groundnut.It tasted better with groundnuts.But like you said,we worry about only the end result 😀
