Chicken - medium size pieces - 1/4 kg.,
Big onion - 2
Tomatoes - 2
Ginger garlic paste - 3 teaspoons
Green chilli - 3
Green corriander - for dressing
Cinnamon - 2 small pieces
Cloves - 3
Red chilli powder - 3 teaspoon
Corriander powder - 3 teaspoon
Turmeric powder - 2 teaspoon
Garam Masala powder - 3/4 teaspoon
Salt - As needed
Add turmeric powder, 1 teaspoon ginger garlic paste, 1 teaspoon red chilli powder, 1 teaspoon corriander powder, salt to the chicken pieces and marinate for half an hour.
Take oil in a frying pan. Add chicken pieces three by three and semi fry the pieces till they are half-cooked in medium heat. Don't leave the pieces in oil for a long time. Keep the pieces aside.
In the same oil, (if you feel the quantity of the oil is more, you can take away some oil ) add cinnamon, cloves and add onions, salt and saute well. When it gets golden brown colour, add ginger garlic paste. Add red chilli powder, corriander powder, turmeric powder and some more salt. Then add tomaotoes and the chicken pieces. Add as much water as needed for cooking the chicken pieces. Close the pan while cooking. Now and then, stir the content. Just 5 minutes before the dish gets ready, add garam masala powder.
The taste and colour will be good enough, if tomato is added raw along with the vegetables or meat.
If you want the dish as thick masala, switch off the stove little earlier.
