Serves 4. In a small bowl mix together cloves, cinnamon stick, mustard seeds, cumin, fennel seeds, curry leaves, turmeric, salt, crushed red chilies, sliced garlic, ginger and leave it aside. Heat a wok on high and add oil. Once the oil is hot add the spice mixture and mix it once and add onion and chili rings. Fry for 3-4 minutes and add chicken and fry on high for 8-10 min or until the chicken is cooked through. Stir it frequently from the bottom of the pan so that the water from the chicken gets evaporated. Reduce the heat to medium, add the coriander, mix it and fry for another 2-4 min.
