Ingredients (3 servings):

  • Chicken - 500-750 g
  • Potatoes - 5-6
  • Ginger paste - 1 and a half tbsp
  • Tomato ketchup - 4-5 tbsp
  • Onions - 2
  • Black pepper powder - 1/2 tsp
  • Kashmiri Chilli powder - 1 tsp
  • Turmeric powder - 1/4th tsp
  • Garam Masala powder - 1/4th tsp
  • Curd - 2-3 tbsp
  • Sugar/Honey - 1 and a half-2 tbsp 
  • Salt to taste
  • Oil for frying 
  • Marinate the chicken with salt, ginger paste, tomato ketchup, black pepper powder, Kashmiri Chilli powder, Turmeric powder, Garam Masala powder and curd. Cover it and leave it aside for a minimum of 30 minutes. It would be better to marinate it overnight. 
  • Heat oil in a utensil, add finely chopped onions and let it cook till they turn golden in colour. 
  • Now, add sugar or honey to it and mix it well till it melts.
  • Add the marinated chicken to it and let it cook, covering with a lid on low flame, till it is well cooked. Keep mixing it from time to time. (DO NOT add water to it.)
  • Now, chop the potatoes into wedges (4-6 wedges from each potato) and deep fry them in another utensil, adding a little salt to it. Wait for it to turn soft and golden-brown. 
  • Mix the fried potato wedges and the chicken mixture just 5 minutes before serving.
