      Boil chicken pieces in water along with 2 cloves of chopped garlic, ginger paste, salt and pepper.

      In a wok or deep cooking pan with lid, pour cooking oil and saute onions and garlic together.

      Once the onions and garlic turn golden brown, add cumin seeds, chicken pieces, garam masala, and red chilli powder.

      Check after 20 minutes to see if the oil is visible on the sides. That means you're done.

      You can let your chicken a little more to thicken the gravy or serve right away with rice or bread.

      This has to be the worst recipe I have ever used. I followed everything perfectly, had a bite to eat, and had to throw it out. Fortunately, I had some leftover mushroom curry in the fridge.

      I thought this recipe was okay at best. It just felt like it was missing something. I even used a lot more garlic and salt, and half the yogurt and it still wasn't quite right.
