Recipe for the Week - Chicken Pepper Fry

3:22:00 pm

There are several versions of this dish and this is a slightly spicier one. Serve it with rice/roti and a vegetable raita to balance out the heat.

What you’ll need (2 servings):

  1. 250 g chicken pieces
  2. 2 tsp coriander powder
  3. 1 tsp pepper powder
  4. 1 tsp ginger garlic paste
  5. 2 tsp curd
  6. salt to taste
  7. 1 tsp soya sauce
  8. 1 tsp whole peppercorns (crushed)
  9. 1 tsp oil

What you’re going to do:

1. Marinate the chicken with all the ingredients from 2 to 6 and keep for an hour.

2. Cook the chicken in a little water.

3. When cooked, you can either evaporate the water till it’s completely dry, if that’s how you want it. I, however, prefer mine with a little bit of gravy, so I don’t let it go fully dry.

4. In a wok/kadai, heat the oil and fry the peppercorns.

5. Add the soya sauce and once it starts foaming, add the chicken (along with gravy, if you wish)

6. Mix well, till the chicken pieces are properly coated with the masala.

7. Turn off the heat and serve.

    Simple, isn’t it! This is a really easy recipe and a good substitute to a plain chicken fry. The marinating process with the curd tenderizes the meat and makes it tastier :-). Do try it out!!
