Stepwise pictures:


  1. If you want this to be like a gravy, increase to two onions and two tomatoes and adjust the amount of chilli powder.
  2. You can even add more baby corns. I like the baby corns more than chicken in this dish.
  3. Adding green chilly at the end along with baby corns gives it a nice flavor, so don’t miss it.
