PEPPER CHICKEN

Pepper Chicken




HAPPY BIRTHDAY BRO!!

Today is my brother-in-laws birthday. 17th of feb at 12 am we presented him with a birthday cake which my hubby used as a face mask for him ;).. we gifted him with a basketball kit :).. he is very much crazy about basketball and have been a coach in his hometown :)... Another one of his favourite is chicken.. So for him I dedicate this recipe to him :)

This recipe is courtesy of Amrita TV - malayalam channel.

Ingredients :
Chicken - 1 kg ( cut into small pieces)
Onion - 1/2 kg finely chopped
Ginger - 1 big piece chopped or 1 1/2 tsp paste
Garlic - 10 cloves chopped or 2 1/2 tsp paste
Pepper - 1 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tbsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Coriander powder- 2 tbsp
Garam Masala - 1 tsp
Tomato - 2 nos med cut into four
Salt
Oil     - 1/2 cup
Curry leaves  - 2 strings


For Mariantion:


Pepper powder - 2 tbsp
Chilli powder - 1/2 tsp
Salt


Preparation:

Clean the chicken pieces properly and marinate the chicken with the powders for mariantion for 1 hour (Min 30 mins).

Then ia pan, add oil and add in the onions, bit salt, ginger and garlic and saute till onions become almost brown in color. Then add in the powders except garam masala and saute on low flame till oil leaves the sides. Add in the marianted chicken and mix. Cover and cook on low flame for 40 mins. In between at approx of 20- 25 mins add in the garam masala and tomato and check if salt need to be added. Cover and cook till 40 mins is done.By now you will see that tomatoes have been easily blended with the curry :).
Fry curry leaves and garnish on top :)

The pic on bottom shows that curry gets darker when kept for some time.



Cheers,
Neetz ;)

Tried out this dish today. Turned out quiet delicious. :) On faux pas though I added a lil curd to the marination. I am sure itwould have altered the taste a bit buyt it was a hit.

Thanks!
