Chicken Jalfrezi

Chicken Jalfrezi
1 chicken - cut into 10 pieces
1 capsicum - diced
1 medium sized onion - diced
2 green chillies - finely chopped
1 large tomato - chopped
2 tbsp tomato paste
1 tsp ginger garlic paste
Half tsp turmeric powder
1 tsp red chilli powder
Half tsp black pepper powder
1 tsp sugar
Half tsp zeera dhaniya powder (cumin/coriander seeds powder)
Salt to taste

In a wok on medium heat take half a cup of oil. Add ginger garlic, turmeric, red chilli powder, zeera dhaniya powder, black pepper powder. Fry for about 2 minutes and then add the tomatoes. Saute for about 5 minutes and then add the chicken and the tomato paste. Pour 1 cup of water and cook covered until the chicken is tender. Open the lid and then add sugar and salt. Turn the heat to low and now it's time to add the diced onions and capsicum. Cook for about 2 more minutes and not more than that because we do not want the capsicum to become too soft.
Garnish it with chopped cilantro. Serve with hot naans or tandoori rotis!!!
