Blend all the paste ingredients into a smooth paste and set aside. In a large bowl, add chicken pieces, salt, green chilli paste and mix well. Marinate it for about 30 minutes.
In a pan, heat oil and add green chillies, turmeric, cumin powder and coriander powder. Sauté for about 30 seconds and then add the marinated chicken. Mix well and cook for about 20-25 minutes. Add garam masala and salt and continue to cook for another 5-10 minutes.
Garnish with coriander and green chillies. Serve hot with plain rice, roti or naan.
For better results, soak the chicken pieces in buttermilk for at least 2 hours. However, if you're running short on time, you can skip this process.
