Cut the cleaned chicken into medium pieces. Take ¾ teaspoon chilli powder, ½ teaspoon Kashmiri chilli powder, 3 tablespoons of ginger garlic paste, ½ teaspoon turmeric powder, ½ teaspoon pepper powder, 2 tablespoons of lemon juice and salt according to taste in a big mixing bowl. Mix the ingredients well and add chicken pieces to it. Sprinkle little water so that the chicken pieces are coated well with the spices.
