Add the chicken pieces and fry for 2-3 minutes, stirring all the time so that the masala does not burn. Add salt, vinegar, and curry leaves.

The Wikipedia definition of a chicken: The chicken (Gallus gallus domesticus) is a domesticated fowl, a subspecies of the Red Junglefowl. The last “chicken count”, dating back from 2011 UN's Food and Agriculture Organisation, estimates a staggering amount of 19 billion chickens inhabit our world thus making them the most numerous of any species of bird on the planet. The first chickens ever to be domesticated, originally solely for the purpose of cockfighting in Asia, Africa, and Europe are from Indian origin. Very little formal attention was given to egg or meat production... Nowadays we keep chickens primarily as a source of food, eating both their meat and their eggs. World’s oldest chicken, a hen, died at the age of 16 of a heart failure…

Get started! Good luck!
