We use roasted chili powder and black pepper to get the dark spicy color. Roasted chili powder not spicier than ordinary chili powder. For this recipe, I use cooking oil with butter. You can use margarine too.

I use lemongrass to get a fresh aroma if you can’t easily find it just ignore it. When I’m cooking this black chicken curry, I used medium heat.

Instead of the cooking oil, this chicken curry recipe uses butter or margarine. It makes the gravy more buttery.

To make the gravy thicker, you can use dice onion and tomatoes. Also, it makes the curry tastier.
