  1. after we add the grilled chicken to the gravy…. do we need to add the leftover marination curd paste in gravy or just throw that away..

    • Hi farooque thanks for your comment. We have used the leftover in the gravy.

      Additionally, try using thick Curd in the marination so there not much is left.
