Although I grew up eating this kind of achari chicken, I'm not sure who came up with the recipe as so many of the aunties in my family friend's circuit make it this way.
5 chicken legs (leg and thigh), each cut into 3 pieces boneless chicken. **You may also use boneless chicken, 2-3lbs
1 Tbsp oil
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp salt ** the tomato juice also has salt in it, so you need to watch how much salt you add. I started off with 1/2 tsp and gradually added more as necessary
½ tsp ghara mirch (red chili) powder
¼ tsp hyde (turmeric) powder
½ tsp garam masala powder
