First, marinate the chicken with yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, and a pinch of turmeric. Let it sit for at least an hour to absorb all the flavors.

In a pan, heat ghee and add whole spices like cinnamon, cardamom, and cloves. Let them sizzle for a few seconds before adding chopped onions.

Once the onions turn golden brown, add the marinated chicken and cook until it turns white. Then, add a spoonful of coriander powder and red chili powder.

Next, add a cup of water and let the chicken cook on low flame for 15-20 minutes. This will allow the chicken to absorb all the spices and become tender.

To enhance the flavor, add a pinch of garam masala and a handful of chopped coriander leaves. Let it simmer for a few minutes before turning off the flame.
