Ingredients

  • Chicken - 2 lbs (1 kg) (boneless, skinless and chopped into very small pieces)
  • Onion - 4 
  • Tomato - 1 (chopped)
  • Green Chillies - 3 (minced)
  • Ginger - 2" piece (minced)
  • Garlic - 8-10 (minced)
  • Turmeric Powder - 1/4 tsp
  • Chilly Powder - 1 tbsp
  • Roasted Cumin Powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala Powder - 1 tsp
  • Kasoori Methi Powder - 3/4 tsp 
  • Cashew paste - 1.5 tbsp
  • Tomato Ketchup - 3 tbsp
  • Water - 1/2 cup

  • Salt - as needed

Method

  1. Heat oil in a pan and saute the ginger and garlic followed by the 2 chopped onions till it turns pink.
  2. Add the tomatoes and green chillies and cook for few minutes.
  3. Let the mixture cool and then puree it in a blender and keep aside.
  4. Heat some more oil in the same pan and add the remaining 2 chopped onions, chicken pieces, turmeric powder and salt.
  5. Saute it for few minutes, cover and let it cook in its own liquid.
  6. The chicken oozes out a lot of water. Let it cook till all the water that has oozed out has evaporated completely.
  7. Remove the lid and keep stirring till the chicken starts getting brownish.
  8. At this stage add the chilly powder, roasted cumin powder, kasoori methi powder and garam masala powder.
