Easy Chicken Dry

I was very tired and exhausted after coming home from office. Just wanted to take some rest. There were some marinated chicken pieces in the fridge. Ok, thought of trying something quick and easy. Just checked my fridge and found some capsicum and tomatoes. Came up with an idea of a quick and easy chicken recipe.
The recipe is mentioned below. Never imagined that the dish would turn out yummy. Yes, it was very very yummy and delicious. It did not take much effort too.

1/2 kg marinated chicken pieces
2 big onions
2 tomatoes
1 capsicum
1 tablespoon pepper powder
1 tsp soya sauce
1 tablespoon chili sauce
1/2 tsp jeera/cumin seeds
Salt to taste

For Marination:
Apply 1 tablespoon turmeric, paste made out of 1 bunch coriander leaves + 1/2 inch ginger + 10 garlic pods, 1/2 cup curds and salt.

In a kadia/wok, fry the cumin seeds for 1/2 Min. Then add onion and when they turn pinkish, add garlic and tomato. When tomatoes turn mushy add the capsicum which has been cut into cubes.
Once the capsicum gets cooked, add pepper powder and mix well. Add the sauces and mix well.
Add the chicken pieces, keep then covered and cook till the chicken pieces are well cooked.
This can be found out by checking if the piece gets easily cut.

Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot either with chapatis or rice.
