- Now take the earlier pan and saute chicken in left over oil of onion.
- After chicken is almost done, add the onion, tomato/curd paste with chicken and cook.
- Add salt to taste, red chilli, coriander powder, haldi, green chillies.
- Finally let chicken get cook until the oil comes out and starts floating on the top.
