2 teaspoon(s) lemon juice
2 tablespoons clarified butter (ghee) / butter / oil

finely chopped coriander leaves for garnishing
1. Make cuts in the chicken pieces. Rub in the yoghurt and the coriander paste all over. Mix in the onion rings and allow to marinate for an hour in a tightly covered heavy-bottomed pan. cook covered tightly on medium level for about 12 minute(s) or till the chicken is almost cooked.
2. Add the clarified butter (ghee) / butter / oil and the rest of the ingredients and fry on low level for about 6 minute(s) or till the chicken is fully tenderised and well coated with the gravy.
Garnish with finely chopped coriander leaves.
* There is a variation of this dish which uses white vinegar instead of yoghurt and lemon juice. Those who prefer less gravy may like it this way.
