One of those many is certainly a chicken chain .

It's aromatic spicy and immensely flavorful .

Hey guys , it's a bomb there and welcome to get curried for the chicken chain .

The first step is to marinade the pieces of chicken .

I've taken curry cuts and to which Aladdin , some lemon juice to this Aladdin , some turmeric powder and along with this , some salt , give this a nice mix and allow the chicken to marinate for a minimum of 30 minutes .

And while that's happening , let's start making the chet n spice mix for this .

Cinnamon stick stares green cardamom and black cardamom allow this to salty a little keeping the flame constantly on moderate while this is happening , I'll also add in some bay leaves .

This is followed by lichen flour or stone flour , which is a peculiar spice used in chain .

Give this a nice mix and at this stage , we'll add in some cloves of garlic .

Choose a variety of chili that gives you nice pecan spice and not the color because Cinna typically is a nice deep brown colored gravy .

Once the spices get nice and toasted and if you notice the color has become deep brown , turn the flame off and remove it on another plate .

It's imperative to transfer this on a plate to stop the cooking process .

The pan goes back on flame on moderate heat again .

And I'll add in the grated coconut .

I'm using fresh coconut .

You can alternately use a mix of dried and fresh coconut .

The coconut has turned nice and brown , turn the flame off and transfer this on another plate .

Allow this to cool down completely .

The spices have cooled down .

I'll transfer this into a grinder and we need to grind this into a fine paste .

But just before that , I'm adding three critical ingredients .

The first one is seeds .
