Dear Sheema ,

Sukha Chicken reeipe whcih i have posted is from South India ( It is a speciality of Mangalore and i am from same native place )and we do use coconut in it and this is required as it is one of the most important ingredeint and is very much authentic .

And i am really sorry , but i am not aware of the pakistani receipe so i cannot comment on it .

I’m a Manglorean too,my version of chicken sukka is similar .I generally dry roast the coconut and add it at the end,using curryleaves nmustardseeds in the vaghar gives it that authentic manglorean taste n makes it yummy too.

could u just mail me the ingredients of the masala to be stored in a contained more, so that every time i need not have to grind all the masala
just remove the powder and add coconut.

6 Red Chillies ( dry ) , 2 tablespoon Daniya ( not leaves – the one u get in shop ), Dalchini pieces,(star anise ) phool 4 pieces ,lavang 4 pieces ,1 tablespoon Kalimiri , very few methi ( which tastes bitter )

U can grind them and prepare the masal so that u can use them when required while making chiken .

Could you make sure that the spelling of the ingredients are in plain English, I have asked firends about what (Garam Masala, Dalchini, phool, lavang, etc.) were and having trouble in knowing exactly. By the way, I was asked to traslate this into Chinese and the only way for me to do that is to know it in English. Thanks.

1.Garam Masala is a mixture of spices( coriander, black pepper, cardamom, bay leaf,cumin or caraway seeds to name a few) and known all over the world as Garam Masala only
2. dalchini -cinnamon
3.Lavang(laung) -cloves
4.phool the author might have meant star anise
