Chicken breast - 500 gm (cut into cubes)
Red chilly powder - 1 tbsp
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Pearl onions - 10-15
Dry red chillies / red chilly flakes - 1-2 tbsp 
Curry leaves - 2 strings
Coconut oil - for frying 
Salt to taste


 Clean chicken and cut into cubes. Marinate the chicken cubes with red chilly powder, turmeric powder, curry leaves and salt. Keep the marinated chicken aside for at least an hour or if possible, keep it overnight.
Heat some oil in a deep pan and fry the chicken cubes until it turns golden brown. Make sure you don't burn them. Keep the fried chicken aside. Now crush the pearl onions and dry red chillies (adjust the quantity of red chilies according to the level of heat that you prefer) together. Heat some coconut oil in a pan and add the crushed mix, salt and some curry leaves. Fry them until it changes color and the raw smell of onion is gone. When oil starts to leave the sides of the pan add the fried chicken and mix well in low flame. If you like curry leaves, at this point add some more curry leaves and mix well. Switch off the flame and serve hot.
