Chettinad Chicken Gravy

This recipe is adopted from Sukanya of Hot and sweet Bowl.
Amma uses Kalpasi or Black stone flower for Briyanis and for
other Non- veg gravies. Since it is not available here I asked
Amma to send Kalpasi and it surely made difference in
the gravy as Sukanya suggested.

Lemon juice - 2 tsp
Salt - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/2 tsp
To dry roast

Cinnamon - 4 "
Cloves - 4
cardomom - 4
star anise - 2
Mace - 2

Onion - 3
Tomato - 1
Ginger - Garlic paste - 2 tblsp
Red chilli - 1/4 tsp
Coriander leaves
curry leaves
Water - 1/4 cup
Oil - 2 tblsp

Could you perhaps put a picture of kalpasi? I don't think I've seen it before. I don't cook/eat non-veg but just curious :)
