Ginger Chicken

This is a recipe that I've had for a long time, wrote it in my diary and totally forgot about it.
Came across this yesterday. 
Its really easy and quick to make with very little ingredients, that you usually already have at home.
This takes about 30 minutes to whip up, so if you have unexpected guests that come over near dinner time, you can cook this to impress them. They'd think that you've spent hours in the kitchen making this incredibly delectable dish!

You'll need:
1 kg Chicken
4 medium Tomatoes (blended with a little water)
2 tsp of Red Chili Powder
1 tsp of Coriander Powder
Salt to taste
1 tsp of Garam Masala Powder
1 tsp of Garlic Paste
250 grams of Yogurt
2 inch piece of Ginger
Coriander leaves

Add Garlic paste and coriander powder to yogurt. Mix and keep aside.

Heat oil in a wok, Add chicken, cook till the chicken turns white. 
Add the blended tomatoes, red chili powder and salt.
Cook till the oil is released and the tomatoes change color, about 15 minutes.

Add beaten yogurt. Cook for about 5 minutes.

Add the julienne ginger, garam masala powder and 2-3 whole green chilies. Cover and cook for 2 minutes.

Garnish with ginger and coriander leaves. Serve
