  1. Hello Priya, It looks gorgeous. I noicted that you mention pepper, cumin powders in the ingredients list. but in the method you mention turmeric powder and not these two spices. Its a bit confusing. Do i take it then i should use all these (turmeric,cumin & pepper) spices for the marination?? Thanks…
