- Reduce the gas to medium and add the balance 2 tablespoons of oil.
- Stir well until the spices and the chickpea flour start browning.
- Cut the tomatoes into small pieces and add to the wok.
- Add a glass of water and deglaze the wok.
- When the water starts boiling, cover the wok and turn the gas to low.
- Soon the oil starts separating and the tomatoes starts to disintegrate.

- Once the mixture starts to thicken, add the chicken breast (cut into small cubes of 1 cm each).
