Chicken - 1/2 kg
Oil - 3 tbsp
Onion - 2 chopped lengthwise 
Tomato - 1 big or 2 small
Fennel seeds -  1/2 tsp
Cumin seeds - 1/4 tsp
Cloves - 6 to 8
Cinnamon stick - 3 to 4 (2 inch length)
Cardamom - 3
Bay leaf - 3 crushed
Chili powder - 1 tsp
Coriander powder - 1.5 tsp
Cumin powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as per taste
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Fresh black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp ( or crush the black pepper coarsely)
Water - 1 cup ( + or - )
Coriander leaves for garnishing 


1. In a wok/ kadai, add oil and when it is hot add the cloves, fennel seeds, cumin seeds, cinnamon stick, cardamom, bay leaf one by one and fry for 1 min in medium heat. ( don't let them become black ).

2. Add the onion and sauté till transparent. Add the ginger garlic paste. Add the tomatoes when the raw smell of ginger garlic goes off and sauté till mushy. 

3. Add the chilli powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, cumin powder and salt. Add the chicken pieces now and mix it well. 

4. Cover and cook the chicken. Chicken leaves the water and mostly that water would be enough for the chicken to cook. If you feel, chicken is not cooked properly, just add 1 cup of water. 

5. Cook the chicken until the oil oozes out. Add the crushed pepper powder now. Mix it well. Cook fur another 5 min and switch off. Garnish with coriander leaves. 

6. Serve the hot hot chicken with steamed rice or roti.
