    Hello,

    I wanted to try this recipe and wondered, how to marinate the chicken without using the chicken masala? Would this be much effort or could it be replaced by a couple of other spices?

    Thank you very much.

    1. Hello Lukas, Yes you can marinate the chicken without using chicken masala, marinate with turmeric powder red chilli powder,freshly grounded black pepper powder and garam masala powder accordingly.Hope this helps! Do revert to me with feedback if you try.

      Hello Sangeetha,

      Thanks! I will try the recipe tomorrow and will report to you about the result ;)
      One question: Should I use the mentioned spices (Turmeric,Chili,Pepper;GM) in equal parts?

      Best Regards
      Lukas

      Delete
    3. Add 1/2 tsp of turmeric powder, 11/2 tsp of red chilli powder, 3/4 tsp GM, 1/2 tsp black pepper powder, though I advice to always use your best judgment when adding spices...more or less according to your spice tolerance level.Good luck! Let me know how it turned out.

      Happy Cooking!
