Heat oil in a large pan(2min) and add the black pepper.
Now add the onion paste along with all the powdered spices, stir evenly and cook on low heat for 2-3min (Cook covered with lid).
After 3min, give the onion paste a stir and it should start to look translucent, cook for 2min.
Now add the boneless chicken and stir everything, cover the lid and cook for another 5-8min or till chicken is cooked. (Keep stirring every 2min and making sure that the paste & chicken doesn’t stick to bottom)
Add fresh coriander paste, lemon juice in yogurt and mix together.
Once the chicken is cooked, add the yogurt mixture and cook on medium for another 5min.
After 5min all the water(from yogurt) would have soaked up and the chicken would have cooked properly along with all the spices.
Turn off the heat, transfer in serving dish, decorate with fresh coriander and serve hot.
