This recipe does not require ginger garlic paste and its no ginger recipe. Usage of ginger is optional.

Garlic 10 cloves finely chopped

Pepper powder 1 teaspoon

How to start?


In a kadai, dry roast all the ingredients given under "To grind" and grind into a fine powder.


Heat oil in a kadai, add fennel seeds and curry leaves. Add chopped onion, little salt, garlic, and green chillies. Saute it well until the onion gets translucent. Now add the tomatoes and fry it for 3 minutes. The tomatoes should get smashed well in the oil.


Add chicken and fry it for couple of minutes. Now add half of the ground powder, chilli powder, coriander power, turmeric powder and salt needed for the pepper fry.


Fry the masala well for sometime and add one cup of water. Close it with a lid and simmer the stove for 10 min.


After 10 minutes the chicken would have released all the juices. Allow the chicken to cook with lid open and let the masala get coated well.


Once the masala gets incorporated with chicken, add the rest of the ground powder, and pepper powder. Fry for a minute. Add a teaspoon of lemon juice before switching off the stove.


Serve pepper chicken fry with steaming hot rice. The masala coated in the chicken will taste extremely good when mixed with rice.
