  1. Bring a large bowl. Chop the onions, capsicum or bell peppers and keep aside. Add the cornflour, oil, ginger paste, turmeric, cumin powder, and mix well. Add a little salt to taste. Now add the chicken cubes and coat them well in the mixture.
  2. Take a frying pan. Put the chicken cubes into it and fry in batches. Do not deep fry, just shallow fry.

  1. Take another pan. Add the rest ingredients from the list and start preparing the sauce. First, pour some oil and start to saute them. Then, add about a half a glass of water and mix well. Keep simmering the mixture without letting it get runny. Now, add the chicken pieces and continue mixing.
  2. Let it get sticky. Add spring onions, lemon wedges and serve hot.


Add some more oil if needed to saute the onion mix.


Do not deep fry the chicken cubes, just shallow fry for 5 minutes each batch.
