  1. Dry roast 1 tsp cumin seeds, the dried red chilies, black cardamoms, coriander seeds and peppercorns till brown and fragrant. Coarsely grind the spices.
  2. Heat oil and add 1 tsp cumin and the bay leaf. When the cumin begins to splutter, add the onions. Saute until the onions have softened. Add the garlic-ginger paste, turmeric powder, coriander powder, chili powder, and salt. Saute for 1 minute and add the tomatoes. Saute till the masala is well cooked and oil separates out on the sides.
  3. Add the chicken and stir well. Cook for 4-5 minutes. Boil the water and pour over the chicken. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes. Remove the lid and add the roasted spices. Cook till the gravy has reduced to almost high.
  4. This might take 5-6 minutes on high flame. Broil the dry fenugreek leaves on a hot griddle and crush over the curry. Garnish with chopped coriander and serve hot. In the roadside Dhaba, you might get this with an added dollop of fresh home made butter on top!
