  1. Chicken(cut in to small pieces)-500 gms
  2. Chopped onions-3 to 4
  3. Chopped tomatoes-2
  4. Chilly powder- 1 tsp
  5. Corriander powder-2 tsp
  6. Turmeric powder- 1/2 tspn
  7. Ginger garlic paste-1 tbspn
  8. Meat masala-1 tspn
  9. Garam masala-1/2tspn
  10. Pepper powder-1to 2 tspn
  11. Salt to taste
  12. Curry leaves-10
  13. Oil
  14. Water


  • Heat oil in a pan
  • Fry the onions and tomatoes together,when the onion turn brown add the chicken and sprinkle some water on top.( make sure the onion is well caramelized,this should  take almost 15 to 20 minutes.)
  • let the chicken cook for few minutes.
  • When the chicken turns soft and is half cooked add ingredients 4 to 11 and fry
  • When the chicken turns really brown add another teaspoon of pepper powder and the curry leaves.

If you like it really spicy,increase the amount of pepper powder rather than the chilly powder.
You can ever try the same thing recipe with mutton,only thing is that you have to cook the mutton before adding it to the fried onion,coz mutton takes more time to cook.

      Try using Kashmiri chili powder and use garam masala instead of meat masala..

    This one turned out to be amazing and my family was drooling after each bite. I added one crushed bay leaf and a pinch of dried parsley leaves
