  1. Cut the chicken breast into bite size pieces, approximately 1 inch cubes. Smear them with salt and set aside.
  2. Chop the onions very finely. Crush the garlic cloves. Chop the green chilli; if you want it to be less hot & spicy, discard the seeds.
  3. Heat oil in a non-stick frying pan. Tip in the mustard, curry leaves and chopped green chilli.
  4. As they start to splutter, add the crushed garlic and chopped onion. Fry them for 3 to 4 minutes.
  5. Add the chicken pieces and the masala powders.
  6. Splash a handful of water and keep stirring so that the masala doesn’t burn.
  7. Continue to fry the chicken. If the masala becomes dry and starts to stick, keep adding splash of water as required, but do not add a lot of water at once.
  8. Fry till the chicken cubes are soft and cooked properly. Keep cooking till all the moisture is completely absorbed. Remove from heat.
  9. Serve the spicy boneless chicken fry on a plate; sprinkle some lemon juice on top with onion rings on the side. Enjoy!
