Heat an iron kadai (preferably) with coconut oil. Add in the sliced onions and green chilies. Let it saute’ on medium heat till light brown (3-4 mins).
Add in the finely chopped ginger and garlic, mix well for a minute. Add Kashmiri chilly powder, coriander powder, garam masala, and turmeric powder. Mix well and add salt if needed.
Add in the marinated chicken. Mix well, add coconut vinegar, cover and cook. If there is water allow it to evaporate on high heat.
Open, and add in the coarsely ground pepper powder and mix well.
Let the chicken dry roast on low flame for another 5 minutes or until it becomes blackish brown in colour. Make sure that you stir/mix it well, so that it does not stick to the bottom of the kadai.
Lastly sprinkle curry leaves and give a nice stir.
