                           A simple curry I make when am not in a mood craving for  a different flavor or when a last minute guest arrives or have no time to grind all the masala ingredients for a rich flavor. Less ingredients does not means less tasty but less effort you put in cooking but the love and passion is same .So thats what matter..isn't it?? 


Chicken------------------------------1-1/2 lbs
Onion---------------------------------1 finely chopped
Yogurt--------------------------------2-3 tbp
Lime Juice---------------------------2 tbsp
Chilli powder -----------------------1-1/2 to 2 tsp depends
Shahjeera-----------------------------1 tsp
Garam masala------------------------1 tsp
Ginger Garlic Paste-----------------1-1/2 tsp


1.Place the Yogurt, Chilli powder, Ginger garlic paste , 1/2 tsp garam masala, Turmeric, Lime juice and salt in a mixing bowl and blend together thoroughly.
2.Clean the chicken and place in a large mixing bowl and pour over the yogurt mixture. Set aside for minimum of 1 hr.
3.Heat up the oil in a medium wok or frying pan and add cumin seeds,cinnamon, cloves, cardommon in the Oil.

4.Fry few cashews and then add finely chopped onions and fry till onions are brown.

6,.Then Add chopped tomatoes and fry till they become soft and then add the chicken marinade and stir-fry for about 3-5 minutes.

7.Add salt,chilli powder,garam masala and cook covered for 8-10 mins stirring in between..
