Your chicken will definitely be hot and spicy with this dish. Success tips: Make the marinade at least 30 minutes before you are ready to cook. You can make it the night before, if that works better with your schedule. When adding the red chili powder to the oil, you can make it as spicy or mild as you like. This dish is served beautifully with some fried rice or noodles.

I couldn't find ajinomoto so I had to omit it but the dish was quite tasty. Although it doesn't serve four people, not even close.

I just wanted to know, how much tomato sauce do we use and what is the consistency of the prepared dish, was there a lot of gravy or was it a bit thicker?

Didn't use Ajinamoto as i heard this is Carcinogenic , also Spring Onion wasn't available in market. Apart from that also everything worked properly and dish was good . I used green Chilies sliced and it went well too. Thanks for the recipe guidance.
