If you're a Durbanite, there's nothing quite like a fresh chicken curry on a cold day. 

And with the weather we have been experiencing lately, it really does warm the heart and soul to be welcomed home to a warm curry; something that's made with a big 'complimenting' or should we say, 'complaining' heart. 

Many Indian mothers are famous for their wholesome cooking and this mother definitely sparks her own praises when it comes to her 'live' chicken curry. 

In KZN, many homes are familiar with cooking a chicken that has been freshly slaughtered. It is something of a tradition, and somewhere along the way, it earned the name 'Live Chicken' in many Indian households. 

TikToker by the name of Emmy Naidoo posted a video of her mother's live chicken curry and a brief conversation they had. 

And we have to admit... we found it hilarious. The way Emmy's mother owns her truth, reminds us that in 'life' you have to walk proudly with your cultural euphemisms (if that's what we can call them).
