Add a half a teaspoon ground turmeric stir and cook for 30 seconds .

Add 1.5 teaspoons of Kashmiri chili powder .

This is the chili powder that's not spicy more for color .

You can substitute paprika if you don't have this chili powder .

Now , add one teaspoon of hot chili powder .

Have more if you like it spicy , add two teaspoons of ground coriander seeds and one teaspoon of ground fennel seeds .

I just ground them up in my spice grinder .

Stir that for a few seconds .

So the spices are a bit toasted .

Turn the heat down if you see that , the spices are burning and add a little more oil if you need to .

Now add chopped tomatoes .

This is two small tomatoes .

Stir this cover and cook until the tomatoes are soft .

You can mash them easily .

I'll be using cut up chicken .

These are from a whole chicken with the skin removed .

I'm using all different parts with the bone in .

It's just more flavorful with the bone in .

If you want to substitute boneless pieces , that's fine too .

Add 1.5 teaspoons of salt , mix the well and cover .

Cook this for 25 to 30 minutes .

Stirring in between .

If you're using boneless pieces , cook only 10 minutes for breast and 15 for thighs .

Basically , you want to cook the meat about three quarters of the way .

After 20 minutes , my pot needs water .

So I'm adding a half a cup stir and cover .

Now , I add a half a teaspoon of salt and bar smoothy rice that's been rinsed , add water and bring this up to a full boil .
