Heat oil in a pan. Put fenugreek seeds and dry red chilli. After few seconds when the seeds turn brown add chopped onion and sauté it. When the onions look translucent, put ginger–garlic paste and fry it for 1-2 minutes. Then, add chopped tomato. When the tomato becomes soft, add chicken and mix well.
