  • Switch off the heat and let it cool.
  • Add some water into the mixture and grind to a fine paste (you can remove the whole spices if needed).
  • Heat a teaspoon of oil or ghee in a pan and put the marinated chicken pieces into it.
  • Stir fry over high heat till the chicken browns slightly and cooks through.
  • All the liquid should evaporate.
