10. 1 tea spoon Garam Masala Powder

2. In a deep pot or handi, heat the oil. Add the sliced onions and fry until golden brown.
3. Now add the chicken. Cook it until it starts changing color. Add the chopped tomatoes and green chilies, stir well.
4. Add turmeric powder, red chili powder, and salt to taste. Stir and let it cook for 5 minutes, until the masala starts leaving oil on the sides.
