For Gravy :-

Heat 1.5 tbsp of veg oil in a non-stick pan. Add minced ginger & garlic to the pan and stir for 1-2 mins on medium flame

Next add sliced mushrooms + capsicum to the pan and sauté for another 1-2 mins

Add the marinated chicken to the pan. Mix well and cook for 7-8 mins on low-medium flame. Stir continuously for even cooking & to avoid burning

Once the chicken starts releasing water & turns light brown from outside, add the prepared marinade to the pan and mix well. Cook for another 3-4 mins. When the gravy thickens and chicken is cooked properly, switch off the gas.

Garnish with some roasted peanuts & serve hot:)
