  • Heat oil in the wok pan on low flame. Add all the group II ingredients.
  • Then add the ginger garlic paste. Fry till the oil separates. Now add onions & increase the flame to medium.
  • Roast till the onion becomes golden brown & add the tomatoes with salt & chilly powder.
  • Now add the chicken pieces & fry for another 5 minutes.
  • Add enough water & allow the chicken to cook. when the chicken is done, finally add the spice powder & coriander leaves. 
  • Allow to cook for 1 minute & switch off the flame.

Tips for the recipe - This gravy looks little water than the normal one. I add the entire spice powder for i love more spice in this curry. If you want very mild spice just adjust accordingly. This goes well with idly & dosa.
