Start by marinating the chicken with 2 tbsp corn flour and 2 teaspoon soya sauce. Mix all these very well. Keep this aside for 15 minutes.

After 15 minutes heat a pan and add some oil to fry the chicken pieces. Increase the gas flame. Once the oil is heated decrease the flame and add marinated chicken pieces one by one. Fry until it gets golden brown. Take them out in a bowl.

Add 2 teaspoon soya sauce and 2 teaspoon salt. Mix them. Remember soya sauce has salt in it, so you do not need to add more salt. Add tomato sauce. Mix it.

Now add fried chicken pieces. Mix everything well. Add a teaspoon of sugar. This is totally optional. If you do not want to add sugar, then skip this part.

Add some more red chilli powder to get the reddish colour as restaurant and this will make the chicken spicier.

Now add a glass of water. Stir it. Cover the pan and let the chicken cook for 5 minutes. After 5 minutes remove the lid and check the consistency. Increase the gas flame. Check how it tastes. Add some more green chillies. If you want some gravy then turn the flame off, but I am going to make it drier. Decrease the gas flame. Add a teaspoon of black pepper powder. Stir it well. Now it is completely ready. Turn off the gas.

Take it out in a serving plate. Garnish with some freshly chopped coriander. Serve this with sliced onion and a piece of lemon.
