1.     Marinate the chicken with all masalas (except oil) for 1 hour.
2.     Heat oil in a frying pan & add marinated chicken, cook on medium flame till the water evaporates,  then cook on a slow flame stirring occasionally till dry & the chicken is done.
3.     Garnish with lemon wedges and onion rings.
