  3. Add the remaining onion slices to the frypan with the bay leaves, cardamom pods, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Fry until aromatic, then add the marinated chicken pieces.
  4. Stir well and cook, covered, 10 minutes until the liquid given up by the chicken has evaporated slightly and the oil is simmering on top.

  6. Add the ghee and stir well. Cook on low heat a further 30 minutes. By now the chicken should be tender. Sprinkle over the sugar and cook 5 more minutes.
