  2. Add the tomatoes and sauté for 4-5 minutes until the mixture is nice and pulpy.
  3. Add paprika, jaggery and salt, and mix well. Tip in the chicken cubes, coat well in the mixture. Cover the pan with a lid and allow it to cook for 7-8 minutes until done.
  4. Mix in the oregano and check seasoning.
