Cut chicken into small/medium pieces, clean well till you get clear water and keep aside to drain.

In a pan, add sufficient oil ( 4-5 tbsp). Once hot, add in the raw masalas and saute for a minute. Then add in the onions and saute till pale. Then add in the ginger, garlic and saute till you get the mix as light brown color. Once color has changed add in the masala powders and saute till oil start leaving the sides. Then add in the tomatoes and saute till tomatoes become soft and suple. Add in the curry leaves and salt and saute for 2 mins. Then add in chicken pieces and mix well with the sauted masalas. Cover and cook for 5 mins. Then add in the water and cover and cook till you get thick gravy. You can check salt in between. Excellent side dish for rice, chappati or any kerala
