Chicken in yogurt curry

Yesterday was a Friday and it means start of the weekend, so I generally like to cook some nice non- veg dish for dinner.Most of the time I make some chicken dish.Yesterday since morning I was wondering what type of chicken to make ,was tired of the same old chicken curry with Garam Masala so went on the net and after going through a lot of chicken recipes just came up with this Chicken dish which is a mixture of 2-3 different preparations.The dish turned out to be good . So here goes the recipe hope you guys like it.

Chicken breast pieces cut in 2-3inch around 10-15 pieces
Ginger-garlic-mint leaves -make a fine paste 2-3 tbsp
lemon juice 1-2 tsp
red chilli powder -1/2 tsp
tumeric powder- a pinch
black pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Onion 1 thinly sliced
tomatoes 1 chopped fine or you can use tomato paste
yogurt 1cup beaten
curry leaves
mustard seeds- 1/2 tsp
corinder leaves
mint leaves
oil 2-3 tsp

1.Wash the chicken and add the ginger garlic paste, red chilli powder, tumeric powder, black pepper powder,little oil and salt .
2.Marinate the chicken with this and keep in fridge for 3-4hrs.
3.Grill this chicken in oven for 20-25mins at a temp of 225deg or till chicken is soft.You can even fry it in oil if you want,but i prefer to grill it.
4. When the chicken is just about ready we can start making the dry curry paste.
5.In a vessel heat about 1-2 tbsp oil and heat .
6. When the oil becomes hot add mustard seed and curry leaves and cook for few secs till you get nice smell of curry leaves .
7. Now add sliced onion and cook on medium flame for 10-15mins or till onion turn brown.
8.Now add the chopped tomatoes and cook till well done or oil starts to separate.
9.Now add the beaten yogurt and cook for 5 mins.
10.Finally add the grilled chicken and mix to coat the chicken with the mixture and let it cook on low flame for 10 mins.
11.Finally add chopped coriander .
12. Serve hot with steamed rice.
You can make this dish more spicy by adding black pepper powder to the yogurt mixture.
