In a large pan add oil and once the oil is hot enough add  mustard seed.
Once you see the mustard seeds splutter, add from ingredient no.4 to no.9, followed by onion and saute well.Add ginger garlic paste and saute until you get a nice aroma, (at this moment there should be absolutely no raw smell of the onion or the ginger garlic paste).

Now add the washed chicken and mix well , followed by all the ingredients starting from ingredient no.13-no.17 and mix well. Add tomatoes and mix well,cover the pan and allow it to cook.Once cooked, leave the pan opened, add crushed pepper mix well and allow the content to stay on the stove in less than medium flame for about 5-10 minutes.Garnish with coriander leaves and serve with white rice.
