Grind ginger garlic paste, green chilies and curry leaves along with onion in the blender. Do not completely blend it.
Heat oil in a kadhai and add the blended mixture with salt, saute well until golden brown. It will take at least 20-25 minutes approximately.
Add turmeric powder, chilli powder, garam masala powder and coriander powder. Saute for about 5 – 6 minutes or until their raw smell leaves.
Add chopped tomato pieces. Saute really well until tomato gets mashed up completely and oil separates.
Add 1/4 cup hot water. Mix well. Add the chicken pieces, salt as required and mix everything well so that the chicken gets well-coated with the gravy.
Cover it until the chicken pieces get tender.
Now in a separate pan, add coconut oil, mustard seeds, curry leaves and let them splutter. Pour this on the top of the curry and cover it for 10 minutes.
Serve with your favourite bread or rice. Enjoy!
