  19. Add marinated chicken and mix well. Sauté.
  20. Cook on medium flame For 20 - 30 Minutes. Keep mixing in between.
  21. Check chicken to see if it is done.
  22. Reduce the Gravy if you wish to make the gravy thick.
  23. Before taking it off the flame add rest of the Garam Masala Powder and mix slightly.
  24. Add a mint leave or coriander leave for garnish and serve with Roti or Rice
My Tip: After taking off the flame leave the chicken to rest for 5 minutes before serving it, this helps the gravy to coat the chicken better.
