  • After they start spluttering, add the sliced onions. Keep stirring till they just start to change colour after about 4-5 mins.
  • Add the chicken along with the marinade, keep stir frying till all the liquid has evaporated and the chicken is cooked through.
  • Add red chilli powder and check the salt.
  • Add the peppers and stir fry again for a few minutes. Also add chopped tomatoes and coriander leaves.
  • Cover with the lid for a while. Don't overcook the peppers, leave them a bit crunchy.
  • Serve hot with naans or rotis topped with coriander leaves as well as a piece of lime on the side.
