Pepper Chicken


Pepper chicken – one of the simple and easy chicken preparations. It goes well with almost all prime dishes like rice, chappathi, appam etc.  The main ingredient of this recipe, as its name says, is black pepper. Here we use freshly crushed black pepper for better flavor and aroma.

Ingredients

  • Chicken - 1 kg
  • Crushed black pepper (കുരുമുളകുപൊടി) - 2¼ Table Spoon
  • Lemon juice (നാരങ്ങാനീര്) - 1 Table spoon
  • Onion (സവോള) - 3 Nos
  • Tomato (തക്കാളി) - 1 No
  • Ginger (ഇഞ്ചി) - 2 Inch piece
  • Garlic (വെളുത്തുള്ളി) - 6 Cloves
  • Curry leaves (കറിവേപ്പില) - 2 Sprigs
  • Coriander powder (മല്ലിപ്പൊടി) - 1 Table Spoon
  • Turmeric powder (മഞ്ഞള്‍പൊടി) - ½ Tea spoon
  • Garam Masala (ഗരം മസാല) - 1 Tea spoon
  • Cooking oil (എണ്ണ) - 3 Table spoon
  • Water (വെള്ളം) - ½ Cup
  • Salt (ഉപ്പ്) - To taste

Method

Step 1

Cut the chicken into medium size pieces and clean it well.

Step 2

Marinate chicken pieces with 2 table spoon of crushed black pepper, turmeric powder (½ tea spoon), lemon juice and salt for minimum 30 minutes.

Step 3

Chop onion, tomato, ginger and garlic.

Step 4

Heat 3 table spoon of cooking oil in a pan (preferably non-stick). Put garlic, ginger and onion and saute it by adding a little salt.

Step 5

When it turns golden brown, reduce the flame to low, add coriander powder (1 table spoon) and garam masala (1 tea spoon). Stir it for 1 minute.

Step 6

To this, add marinated chicken pieces, curry leaves and chopped tomato. Stir it occasionally for 5 minutes on a high flame. Add ½ cup of water and cook it covered till done.

Step 7

Open the lid and continue cooking for few minutes to make the gravy thick (take care to prevent it from burning). Add ¼ table spoon crushed black pepper and combine it.

Step 8

Transfer the Pepper Chicken to the serving dish and garnish it with chopped coriander leaves.

Tips

1) You can use pepper powder instead of crushed pepper. But I strongly recommend to use freshly crushed black pepper for the better taste.

2) If you don’t have garam masala add ½ table spoon chicken masala as an alternative.

3) To avoid raw odour of chicken, 1 table spoon of vinegar or lemon juice can be used, when cleaning the chicken.

Myself, Shaan Geo basically a Software Engineer started my career in IT Industry. I have had a passion for food and cooking from an early age. This habit made me keep an eye out for the new variants of food and the different cuisines where ever I go. According to me cooking is an equal-opportunity talent and I find that anybody can cook. It is not limited by the age, profession, caste, colour or creed of a person. What is needed is the love for cooking. For me passion for cooking does not stop in the kitchen, when I travel, I continue to be inspired by eating in some of the best restaurants around the world.

      Rekha, Thank you very much for your valuable suggestion. Adding more detailed photographs will definitely makes the blog more interesting, but it will affect the performance of the website. It will take more time to load the pages for people who is having low bandwidth internet connections. Once again thanks a lot for your feedback.
