Here is the pepper chicken recipe, finally! I've been getting requests for this recipe for a long time. Though I came across many recipes, I didn't find any of it interesting to give it a try. I'm glad to say, the search ends here! Last time when I went to Kerala for holidays, I happened to see a cooking show featuring this recipe. It was a sunday and I was just lazying around, lying down on the sofa, surfing the channels. The moment I heard the word ‘pepper chicken' on TV, I just jumped out of the sofa, got hold of a piece of paper that I could find and started writing down.
Sometime ago, when I was planning to cook chicken, I thought of this one and started searching for the recipe, but couldnt find. To top it, I wrote it down on a tiny piece of paper. How I wish everything had some kind of button or code attached to it, so that we can give it a ring just like the mobile phone & find it instantly! Dont you think so? Anyways… a few days later, when I opened my recipe diary, some bits of paper fell down. Tada! It was the pepper chicken recipe…
Though I started with the recipe on paper, I ended up with something totally different. It wasn't intentional, but it happened just like that. Anyways, I'm happy with the end result. I loved the colour, the flavour… Let me tell you, it turned out quite spicy! You will get the sharp taste of pepper in the first mouthful itself. So please feel free to adjust the spice level to suit your requirements. Since this is a dry preparation, you can use this as a starter also. Btw, I somehow got the feel of a ‘thattukada' (street food) food from this, may be because of the spiciness and colour of the dish.
Hope you'll also enjoy this and wish you a spicy weekend ;)
