Arachu Vecha Kozhi Curry/ Chicken Curry (Pasted Gravy)

Today's recipe is a simple Chicken curry.The same curry which mostly every one cooks but the twist is the whole sauteed ingredients are pasted and then proceeded,which gives it all the difference.My children love chicken curry compared to fish or any veg.curries,but then too it's like they just dip and flip the rotis in the gravy and eat.
Though they complete their meal there is always the onion tomato mixture at one corner.However mushy the onions and tomato tend to be they will get something to pick up and keep to the sides.My Umma used to make this curry for my brother,but now I and my sisters also prepare twist it the same way with the ordinary Chicken curry.
      Though it’s the same amount of ingredients we use for the regular curry,cooking it this way, the taste turns awesome.It's so lovely to see the plates and even the pressure cooker mopped so well.Now on to the recipe:
Chicken   1 kg (cut into medium pieces)
Onion  (roughly chopped)      3 
Tomato (       ''      ''  )    2 large
