  1. clean chicken and marinate with turmeric powder for about an hour

  3. Then add in the grounded powder and fry for a min,add in all the masala powders and keep sauting.You can add water if its too dry to saute.
  4. Then add in the chicken pieces and fry for about a min.Then add the chopped tomatoes and the thin cocunut milk.Add water if the chicken pieces are not immersed.
