  20. lena there is doubt..in the method first sentences expect chicken make a paste of all ingredients to marinate. Keep it for minimum 30minutes.so to make the paste which ingredients we need to use.is it the ingredients gvn under the caption to marinate ?if so then when we need to mix up the paste..in your recipe it is not saying only u mentioned to make a paste nt shwn when to add this ..kindly make me clear on this
