Heat oil over medium-high heat in a large pan. Lightly brown the chicken on all sides in the oil. Turn heat to low, then stir in the tomatoes, ginger paste, chillies, crushed peppercorn and salt. Cover and simmer for 15 minutes.
Pour in the water and turn the pieces of chicken over. Cover and continue cooking until the chicken is done, about 15 minutes more, adding additional water as necessary.
