Step 1

Cut chicken into small pieces.

Step 2

Roast chilli powder, coriander powder and turmeric powder together in a pan without oil to remove the raw smell and taste of these powders.

Step 3

Marinate chicken pieces with roasted masala, lemon juice, 1 tsp of garam masala and little salt.

Step 4

After half an hour, cook this marinated chicken with little water in a medium flame and make sure that there is no water left after cooking the chicken.

Step 5

Heat the oil in a pan or kadai.

Step 6

Saute the sliced onion till it becomes light brown.

Step 7

Add ginger and garlic paste and saute for a while.

Step 8

Add sliced tomato and mix it well.

Step 9

Add the cooked chicken pieces and mix it well with the onion masala.

Step 10

Sprinkle the remaining garam masala over the dish and cover it with a lid and cook it on very low flame for 15 mins.

Step 11

Add some salt if needed.

Step 12

After 15 mins, serve the dish with appam, chappathi or parotta.


The masala is just like any other used for chicken (curry) recipe. Nothing different. Try roasting 1 cup grated coconut (roast till light brown only) and add to the masala. The taste is different and much better than the plain recipe above.
