1 big tomato chopped
1/2tsp mustard seeds
a sprig of curry leaves
1 small cinnamon stick
2 cloves
1 cup hot water
chopped coriander leaves

Preparation Method:
Heat 1tsp oil in a wok and fry the shallots till golden brown . Once it becomes golden brown add dried chili or chili powder,coriander powder,curry leaves and cumin seeds-saute till the dried chili darkened at sides. Remove from flame and grind into a paste once it's cooled.In the same wok add another 2tbsp oil and splutter mustard seeds,clove,dried chili,curry leaves and cinnamon stick followed by the chopped chicken pieces. water and tomato. Let the chicken cook well in the oil and then pour in the grind masala paste. Cover and cook till the chicken become tender. Adjust the level of salt and spice powder. You can 1tbsp coriander powder or chili powder if find the gravy blend and if you find the gravy too thick-dilute with boilwater or remove from flame. Serve hot with chopped coriander leaves.
