Rub the chicken pieces with some Salt, Turmeric Powder, Vinegar and a drizzle of Mustard Oil. Keep it covered for 30 minutes.
Heat a skillet. Keep the flame medium-low.
Now, place all the spices on the skillet and stir it. When you see the spices browning up a bit, turn off the heat. Remove the skillet from the stove top or hob and keep stirring the spices as the skillet still retains enough heat to burn the spices.
When you feel that the skillet has cooled down a bit, remove the spices and blend them into a fine powder.
Heat Mustard Oil in a pan. Drop the Bay leaf in it.
Meanwhile grind the Onions, Tomatoes, and Garlic into a fine paste, & add this to the Oil.
Fry this mix till it reduces in half.
Now, add the marinated Chicken and the prepared Spice Mix. Give everything a stir so that the masala has covered the chicken nicely.
Add around 1/2 cup of water and check the seasoning. Add salt as required. Cover the pan with a lid to simmer for 5-7 minutes.
Remove the lid to see if the chicken has cooked properly.
Once you see that the chicken has cooked nicely, remove from heat and serve. You may garnish it with finely chopped Coriander leaves, sliced Onion and Ginger julienne.
