Ingredients Amount

Olive oil 4tbsp
Finely sliced onions 2 cups
Chopped tomatoes 2 cups
Garlic 4tsp
Ginger 1tbsp
Coriander powder 2 tbsp
Cumin powder 1tsp
Turmeric powder ½ tsp
Red chilli powder ½ tsp
Garam masala powder 2tsp
Fenugreek leaves washed and finely chopped 500gm


  • Take cooking oil in a heavy bottom pan and heat it on medium flame.
  • Add sliced onions to the hot oil. Sauté till the onions change into a pale golden brown color. Now remove from the oil with a slotted spoon and keep on a paper towel to absorb the extra oil. Turn off heat.
  • Grind the onions to a fine paste, adding very little or no water, in a mixer. Once done, remove and keep aside.
  • Now grind the tomatoes, garlic and ginger together into a smooth paste. Remove and keep separately for later use.
  • Re-heat the oil left over after frying the onions and add the onion paste. Sauté for 2-3 minutes. Now add the tomato paste and all the powered spices, including the garam masala. Mix well.
  • Sauté this masala (onion-tomato-spice mixture) for about 10 minutes until the oil separates from it.
  • Now add chicken pieces to the masala and salt to taste. Stir properly to fully coat the chicken pieces and cook till the chicken is browned well.
  • Add the fenugreek leaves and half a cup of water to the pan. Mix well, simmer the heat and cover the pan. Keep stirring regularly to avoid the masala getting stuck to the bottom of the pan. Also keep adding water  if the masala gets too dry. The dish should have gravy of thickness when done.
  • Serve hot accompanied with hot chapatis, naan or plain boiled rice.
