Pepper Chicken

Pepper Chicken is a hot and spicy chicken dish. This recipe is quite popular in southern part of India. If you want to add flavor and little spice in your taste bud then try this delicious and hot recipe. Its a perfect preparation to serve to your guests along with paratha, roti or naan. So lets try this with "Flavors of Sneha's Kitchen".


Pepper Chicken
500 gms boneless chicken
2 large onion sliced
2 medium tomatoes sliced
1 tbsp of ginger-garlic paste
2 tbsp of grated coconut
2 tsp of coriander powder
2 tsp of chilli powder
1/2 tsp of turmeric powder
2 sprigs of curry leaves
1 tsp of fennel seeds
1 tbsp crushed black peppercorns
Salt to taste
2 tbsp oil
2 tbsp of chopped coriander leaves

  • Heat 1 tbsp oil in a pan. Add sliced onion and salt. Saute until translucent.
  • Add ginger-garlic paste and saute for a minute.
  • Now add tomatoes and saute for one minute.
  • Add grated coconut, coriander powder, chilli powder and turmeric powder. Mix well, cover and cook for 2 minutes.
  • Let it cool down and put it into the blender. Add little water to make a smooth paste.
  • Now heat rest of the oil in a pan. Crackle the fennel seeds.
  • Add curry leaves and immediately add the chicken pieces. 
  • Sprinkle some salt and saute for 2 minutes.
  • Now add the crushed peppercorns and onion tomato paste.
  • Cover and cook for 20-25 minutes until chicken is tender. Make sure to stir in regular intervals to avoid sticking this in pan.
  • Now add some more crushed peppercorns and saute for a minute.
  • Add the finely chopped coriander leaves, cover and let it simmer for 2 minutes. Serve hot.

Note: Since, I have used chilli powder and peppercorns both, you will find this recipe very spicy. So feel free to adjust the spice level according to your taste bud. Though, I have used boneless chicken but this recipe tastes good with bone in chicken too.
