Chicken Masala is an Indian cuisine,but as a Sri Lankan,I like the spicy taste.This is bit spicy ,but matching with rice & curry or with any kind of roti/paratha.
Even the recipe is spicy,you can adjust salt,spices & chilli as per your taste.

Ginger - 1 piece
Garlic - 2 bulbs
Cloves - 4
Cinnamon - 1 piece
Sliced onion - 1 cup
Vegetable/coconut oil - ½ cup
Salt, Curry leaves - As required
Grind pepper, fennel seeds, turmeric powder, red chilly, ginger, garlic, cloves, and cinnamon.into a paste.
