Marinate 250 grams boneless chicken breast cubes with 1/2 heaping tsp. of red chilly powder, 1/4 tsp. of turmeric powder, 1/2 tsp. of salt, 1/4 tsp. of pepper powder and 1/4 tsp. of garam masala powder for 30 minutes. Shallow fry the marinated chicken pieces in hot oil for 4 minutes on each side. Remove the fried chicken pieces from the pan & keep aside.
  2. Marinate 1 medium potato (cut into small cubes) with 1/4 tsp. of red chilly powder, 1/8 tsp. of turmeric powder and 1/2 tsp. of salt for 10 minutes. To the same oi used for frying the chicken cubes, add the marinated potato pieces and fry for 5 minutes on each side.
  3. Heat 2 tbsps. of sunflower oil in another pan & add 2-3 medium onions (thinly sliced)+ 1 tsp. of ginger paste+ 2 big garlic cloves (pounded) & fry till the onion turns golden brown in colour.
