  • chicken 500 g
  • 1/2 cup oil or ghee
  • 3,4 tomatoes, finely chopped
  • Garlic paste
  • National salt to taste
  • 2 tsp National Red Chilli Powder
  • 0.5 tsp National Cumin
  • 0.5 tsp methi dana
  • 2 green chilis chopped
  • 2 green chilis, slit in half lengthwise
  • 0.5 bunch of coriander, chopped
  • 1/4 cup ginger cut into matchstick pieces
  • 1 onion ring shape cut
  • 1 lemon
  • National ketchup


  • Heat up your oil in a karahi dish and add National cumin and methi dana.
  • Add the chicken in. Fry this, constantly stirring until the chicken begins to take on a golden color.
  • Add in the garlic paste.
  • Add all the chopped tomatoes and green chilies and spices. Stir in and allow this all to cook.
  • Continue to cook this mix for about 20 minutes. The oil will separate, and the tomatoes will thicken.
  • The chicken should be cooked through at this point.
  • Add the coriander, green chillis, and national ketchup. Stir and turn the heat down to a low flame and allow everything to simmer together for 5 minutes.
  • Serve with the matchstick-cut ginger and additional onion and lemon if desired.
