Procedure:

-Heat oil and fry onion until its golden brown. Add ginger and garlic and stir fry for 2 minutes. Now add tomatoes and cook for 2 minutes on medium heat until they tend to lose their stiffness. Add some water (1/4 cup) and simmer the curry. Break and mash the onion and tomato chunks with your spoon.

-Add more water in needed but in very less amount.

-When masala is all good to go, add chicken and spices and cook covered on low heat for 30 minutes with occasional stirring. Let the chicken cook in its own juices.
