Heat oil in a karahi and add the sliced onions. Fry the onions till they become brown. Transfer them to a plate and keep aside.
In the remaining oil add the washed chicken. Fry for a minute.
Add onion paste, ginger garlic paste, red chili powder and cumin powder. Fry till the masala leaves the oil from the sides. Now add in salt and required amount of water (for curry consistency) and mix.

Serve hot with plain rice or chapati.
You can use boneless chicken to reduce the time of cooking.
