  • If you have ginger garlic paste, add 1 tsp of it & skip the ginger and garlic in roasting here.
  • I used boneless chicken here, but you can use either bone or boneless.
  • If you're using chicken with bones, the cooking time may varies.
  • Add coconut paste once the chicken is well cooked.
  • If you're using boned chicken, you can pressure cook the chicken to speed up the process.
  • Depend on the thickness of gravy you want, add more or less water.
