      Jenubouka , though it wasnt in this recipe but in most Indian recipes yogurt ( curd as we call it) is used to marinate the chicken. Yes it does make it tender and lets the spices go deep inside the chicken and give it a unique flavour and taste.

      Emkroberts, I have never had it in olive oil but you can try. Also almond flour looks nice variation. Do let me know how it comes out.

      Vote up and yes this dish looks very tasty! Well written instructions, simple yet unique ingredients paired well here. I love using yogurt in chicken recipes it acts as a tenderizer and adds great flavors!

      this sounds really good. I'm going to try it with Olive oil instead of corn oil and a little almond flour instead of cornstarch. I'll let you know how it goes...
