After a minute, Incorporate the Indad Masala with the Spices in the Vessel on Low Heat for 2-3 Minutes

After Blending in the Mixture - Add your Pieces of Chicken along with its Broth to the Vessel.
Add the Salt and Sugar and Mix it Well
Add 2 Cups of Water in the Vessel and let it Cook for about 10 to 15 Minutes on Medium Heat
