Chillipower- 1tsp or as per your taste
Salt as per taste
2-3 cardamom
1 bay leaf

Cut & clean the chicken pieces. Marinate the chicken with salt, haldi , chiili powder & curd for 1 hour.
Then grind the above ingredients which are given for masala...keep aside.
Take a pan. Heat oil. Add bayleaf & cardamoms..
Then add the onions. Sauté till they becomes light brown in colour. Then add the previously done grinded masala paste. & mix well. sauté for 5-7 min. Till masala done & oil separates from masala.
Then add the marinated chicken pieces & mix well. sauté for 15-20 mins. Chicken will release water..Cover a lid let it cook in it’s own juice. If required sprinkle some water with your hands so that the masala will not stick in the bottom. Cook for another 15-20 min. Keep stirring occasionally & check if the chicken is well cooked . If you want it to be more soft, cook them  for some more time.
You can add some garam masala if you want.
