Spicy Tamil Chicken

READY IN: 1hr 5mins
Recipe by echo echo

To make this a one-dish meal, add some vegetables of your choice. You could also add pineapple. If you don't like cilantro, leave it out, or if a whole bunch is too much for you, adjust amount to your taste. Ghee could be used in place of peanut oil.

Hello echo_echo. Hello food.com. The first paragraph is broken, leaving out the info on how to incorporate the cumin, black pepper, coriander, and turmeric. I'm eager to try this. Please fix paragraph 1!
