Steps

1
Done

Method:

Heat the oil n butter, add the whole spices (cumin, cardamom, cinnamon, pepper, cloves). Once they start to sputter, add the fenugreek/methi leaves, followed by the chopped onions. Fry the onions on medium heat until golden, then add the ginger and garlic, followed by the chopped tomatoes and 1 green chili. Cook until the tomatoes reduce in amount and thicken up, releasing the oil.

2
Done

Turn up the heat to high, now add the marinated chicken pieces. Stir fry them in this mixture on high heat for 5 minutes until the chicken turns color, then reduce the heat to low, add the cumin powder, chili powder and coriander powder plus half a cup of warm water. Cover the pot and let the chicken simmer on low heat for about 10 minutes.

3
Done

Check on it, stir and add some salt, then cover again and let it cook for another 8-10 minutes. Now check on the chicken, add the chopped capsicum/pepper, adjust salt and add the second green chili plus a bit of the coriander leaves (if you're not using capsicum, just add the salt and green chili n coriander leaves at this point).

4
Done

Cover and simmer again for another 5-8 minutes or until the capsicum has started to soften. Check if the chicken is done, squeeze the juice of half a lemon, sprinkle the garam masala and some chopped coriander. Turn off the heat once the chicken is done.

5
Done

Leave it to rest for about 20 minutes covered before serving so that the flavours get properly infused into the chicken. Garnish with ginger and more coriander, and serve with either rice or naan...or whatever else you prefer.
