Add some salt.
Add 1/2 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste

Keep the chicken aside for 15-30 minutes so that all the flavours are absorbed by chicken.

We will make everything in one single pot.

After 15-30 minutes, it's time to cook chicken.
Start the pan on medium flame.
Add 2 tsp Oil. Warm it up.
Put in the marinated chicken.

Time to cook the gravy. Take the same pan.
The pan already has oil in it.

Churn it into a gravy.

Mix it well.
Add 1/2 tsp Red Chilli Powder.
