1.Wash & cut chicken breast into small pieces/cubes.

2. Marinade chicken pieces with salt ,redchilli powder,turmeric powder and ginger -garlic paste & yogurt abt 15 min and keep a lid over the chicken so that gignger-garlic smell preserves with chicken.Mean while cut onions into very fine pieces.Grind tomatoes and make it fine paste using mixer.

3. put a pan on heat,once the pan gets heated add oil .once the oil gets heated add cuminseeds .when cuminseeds are stats spluttering/popping up add cinnamon and cloves & later add onions and stir it for 5-10 min till onions becomes transparent.

Don't place the lid.Once the chicken is started to oozing out all of the mixtures (means all juices/water content starts to accumilate at the ends) stir the whole mixture once and then add coriander powder and black pepper,chicken masala powder and reduce heat to low.

5. Mix well,If you wish to have a little gravy,kee the lid for some time otherwise no need.We have to roast our chicken on low flame.
