Black Pepper Chicken

I go visiting my mom's kitchen and there she is making a spicy pepper chicken, which is loaded with black pepper powder. So you get a rich peppery taste for the chicken and i loved having this spicy pepper chicken with roti /chapati.

Ingredients

2 kilo - Chicken, cut to small pieces

To marinate

4 to 5 tsp - Black pepper powder
2 tsp - Turmeric powder
Salt to taste

Other ingredients

1 cups - Small onions / shallots, chopped
1 tsp - Black pepper powder
8 to 10 - Green chilies, chopped
1'' piece - Ginger
4 to 5 sprigs - Curry leaves

Method

1 ) Mix black pepper powder, turmeric, salt with little water and apply on the chicken pieces. Marinate for 1/2 hours.

2 ) Transfer chicken to a pan and cook on low flame, covered with a lid. Chicken will give out water, so cook in that water till chicken is fully cooked and tender. Dry out all excess water once the chicken is cooked.

3 ) Heat 3 tbsp of coconut oil in another big pan, add black pepper powder, fry for few seconds, then add green chili, curry leaves, ginger and fry for a minute. Now add onion and fry till onion is lightly browned. Add cooked chicken pieces, add more oil, fry very well till the pieces are browned well and you get a well browned chicken.

Serve with roti.

This is for people who love spicy food !

WOw, peppery I like :-) it is amazing how much flavor this simple spice has. I make black peppered cashew nuts, just fry in oil with loads of black pepper and salt - it is unbelievably tasty :-)
