Now add this paste to the chicken along with mustard oil(2 teaspoon), salt and turmeric powder. 
Keep aside for 1 hour. 
Heat mustard oil in a heavy bottom kadhai and add the chopped onion. 
Fry it for few minutes and then add green chillies, a pinch of turmeric powder, jeera and dhania powder. Saute for 2 to 3 minutes. 
Add the chopped tomatoes and stir for a while until the oil starts separating from the masala. 
Add the marinated chicken, 1/2 teaspoon salt and mix well. 
Cover the kadhai and let it cook for 4 to 5 minutes on low heat to release water.
