Cook chicken on high heat to seize the pores. This step will make the chicken soft, tender and juicy. 
If you don't have dry ginger (Zingiber Officinalis) then use fresh chicken. Dry ginger is dehydrated so create a specific flavor in chicken curry. 
Peel tomato skin before adding in curry as it will make smooth curry. 
Before dishing out make sure to cook the chicken on high heat until it shows oil on the sides.
