Heat oil in a pan and add marinated Chicken in it. Cook the chicken for 2-3 minutes on medium flame.
Cover the pan with lid and cook the chicken on low flame for about 7-8 minutes and in between stir occasionally in every 2-3 minutes, so that chicken should not get burnt.
Add prepared Spicy Red Gravy and mix it well. Cover pan with lid and cook it further for 3-4 minutes on low flame.
When the gravy is little dried, check if chicken is cooked properly or not. If its undercooked, add some water and cook it for few more minutes on low flame. Please note, chicken will keep cooking further for few minutes even after you have switched off gas, so don’t overcook your chicken. When you are sure chicken is properly cooked add some fresh chopped Coriander Leaves and cook it further with covered lid for 1-2 minutes on low flame.
Our Chicken Masala with Red and Spicy Gravy is now ready. Turn off the gas and cover the pan with lid for 2-3 minutes before serving. This will help chicken and gravy settle down which will give you better flavors.
