- Add in the ground paste and sauté still over medium fire under continuous stirring until the flavors emerge.
- Add in the marinated chicken and add water as needed to cook the chicken.
- Cook chicken until tender (20 minutes or more, depending one the size of your chicken cuttings).
- Add yogurt, tomatoes and salt to taste.
- Bring to a boil and take of the heat immediately.
- Serve with the best basmati rice you can find or your favorite bread and a simple cucumber raita.
