  1. In a hot pan, add the oil. After the oil heats up add the onion and sauté until light brown.
  2. Add the ginger garlic paste and chiles and sauté for 1 minute.
  3. Put in the turmeric powder and cracked peppercorns and sauté well.
  4. Add the tomato and let it cook until it turns soft and mushy.
  5. Now, add in the chicken and mix everything. Cover the dish, put it on low heat, and cook until chicken is half done. (This is the time to add the potato if using).
  6. Cover and cook until done and all the juices from the chicken have dried. No water needs to be added to this dish as the chicken will cook in its own juices. Season with salt.
  7. Enjoy!
