Mix the garam masala with the salt and pepper and rub over the meat. Put onion, tomatoes, sugar, tamarind and chillies into a pan with three glasses of water. Boil until one glass of water is left. Add the mint and coriander and stir.
Pour the oil into a frying pan and add the chicken and curry leaf and fry for 10-20 mins, or until cooked right through. Now put all this into the pan with the sauce. Cook for 2 mins over a low heat.
