Pepper Chicken

          This is a simple, straight forward recipe with all the basic ingredients that go into making a normal chicken curry and yet tastes quite different from the routine simple chicken curry flavor...

      Three of the most popular flavors, black pepper, lemon & fennel seeds powder are perfectly blended together which delivers the rich flavor....This curry goes well with white rice, rotis, dosas, appam & bread too..

       From ancient times, black pepper is one of the most widely traded spices in the world......It is not seasonal and is, therefore available throughout the year......You will get the sharp taste of pepper in the first mouthful itself..... So please feel free to adjust the spice level to suit your requirements.......

Ingredients(for marination)

1.Chicken-1/2 kg
2.Pepper-1/2 tsp
3.Salt-1/4 tsp
4.Lemon juice/ Vinegar-1 tsp

Ingredients(for masala)

5.Onion-3 (large)
6.Ginger(grated)-1 tsp
7.Garlic(grated)-1 tsp
8.Green chilly-2 (slit into half)
9.Whole Black pepper corns-1 1/4 tsp (grind little..not to a smooth powder)

                     When you grind your own pepper, you enhance the freshness of the pepper and probably get a better health benefit from it.....In addition, the outer skin of the peppercorn most likely enhances metabolism, leading to a higher probability of weight loss.  

10.Garam masala-1 tsp
11.Fennel seeds powder(perum jeeraka podi)-1/2 tsp
12.Turmeric powder-1/4 tsp
13.Soya sauce-1 tsp
14.Tomato-1 (large)
15.Coriander powder-1 tsp
17.Coriander leaves(chopped)
18.Curry leaves


~Marinate the chicken with pepper, salt & lemon juice for atleast 1/2 n hour.

Very spicy & juicy chickens are ready !!!
The aroma of freshly ground black pepper is difficult to ignore....
