Pepper Chicken

Another Chicken gravy... As I mentioned in one of my earlier recipes, bringing in variations to chicken gravy is very challenging for me :). Here is one recipe that uses only pepper powder and has no grinding etc required. It is a really quick recipe provided you have cleaned and cut chicken pieces.

Chicken - 350 grams
Onion, large - 1
Tomato, large - 1
Pepper powder -  1 1/2 tsp
Cumin powder - 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1 pinch
Ginger paste - 1/2 tbsp
Garlic paste - 1/2tsbp
Oil - for frying
Water - 3/4 cup to cook the chicken
Coriander leaves - for garnishing

Wash and clean the chicken pieces well and keep aside. Coarsely chop the onions and tomatoes. Heat the oil in a cooker and add the chopped onion and tomato pieces. Fry for a few seconds and then add ginger and garlic paste. Fry well until the raw smell is gone. Add the Pepper, cumin and turmeric powder and put in the chicken pieces. Keep frying the chicken pieces until the fat dissolves and raw smell is gone. Add 1/2 cup of water and close the lid. Allow two whistles and turn off the flame. When the cooker cools down, check the consistency of the gravy and add another 1/4 cup of water if needed and bring to a boil. Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot with Chapati.
Verdict: Well, my daughter relished three pieces of chicken from her dad's plate, that I had to give hubby dear a second serving :).
