In a pan, pour oil. When hot, add the ginger, garlic and green chillies. Saute for a minute.

Add onions and 1/4 tspns of salt. Dad says, it shall help the onion saute quick. Saute till golden brown.

Add chilli powder and coriander powder. Mix well for 3-4 mins. Add chicken masala to it. (My personal choice- Eastern Chicken Masala :P ) Mix well.

Add the tomatoes and saute till the oil is apparent. (If the mixture seems dry, add 1/4 cup of water).

Add 2 glasses of water, mix well again and close with a lid. Allow it to cook in high flame for 7mins. Check the consistency and again cook in low flame for another 10 mins. Add salt to taste.
