Marinate the boneless chicken pieces in curd along with cashew paste, salt as per taste, garam masala powder, red chili powder, coriander powder and ginger-garlic paste. Let the chicken marinate for half an hour.
In a thick-bottomed pan, heat butter over medium flame. Add the whole spices in it and let them saute for a few seconds. Then, add the marinated chicken pieces to the pan and fry over medium flame, make sure to stir in between so as to prevent them sticking to the bottom. Then, add tomato puree along with coriander leaves to the pan and mix well, switch the gas flame to low.
Meanwhile, in a separate pan pour oil to fry the onions. When the oil is hot enough, shallow fry the thinly sliced onion and once fried well, add it to the pan. Save some of the fried onions for garnishing.
