Mini Tips:
  • If don't know how to cut a chicken, seek help from your butcher. Or replace by 1 pound of chicken fillets and chicken wings.
  • Turmeric pastes already contains herbs to give more fragrance. If using turmeric powder, you may add cumin seed and mixed herbs as desired. These ingredients can found in South Asia food store.
