Once the oil is hot, add cloves, black cardamom, bay leaves and dry red chillies.

Add ginger and garlic and fry for 2 minutes.
Now add coriander powder. Bengali garam masala powder and red chilli powder and cook for a few seconds.
Add the chicken along with the marinade.

Remove the cover and cook for another 3-4 minutes until the gravy is slightly reduced.
Add kasuri Methi and cook for another minute. (Optional)

Traditionally the curry of this dish is kept thin but you can choose to make thick gravy.
