Clean the chicken in water and slice the onion.
In a large mixing bowl, take the cleaned chicken, add in chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, garam masala, curd, salt, sliced onion, ginger garlic paste and curry leaves. Mix well and marinate it for 30 minutes. Marinating the chicken is optional but it makes the masala to bind well into the chicken.
In a pan, heat little oil and place the chicken. Saute for 2 minutes and cover with a lid. Let it cook on medium flame with the curd and the water that leaves from the chicken. Stir occasionally to avoid burning on the bottom.
If you want , add 1/2 cup of water to cook the chicken. This will ease the process. But this is optional.
Once the chicken gets dry, keep stirring often to avoid masala getting burned. Stir fry until it becomes completely dry and cooked.
Garnish with coriander leaves and switch off the flame.
