Vacation is barely 10 days away & I am decluttering the wardrobe and my kitchen too. Last nite while browsing I came across this lovely recipe on this blog http://spicesnaroma.blogspot.com/2011/05/pepper-chicken-chicken-milagu-varuval.html . I had all the ingredients in my kitty and decided the menu for today. As am using up my available stuff - I have made slight variations...........however, this chicken is AWESOME!!!!! just as this picture.

  • Chicken Thighs - 375 gms
  • Shallots chopped - 1 cup
  • Garlic - 6 pods crushed
  • Ginger - 1'' crushed
  • Green Chilly - 3
  • Curry Leaves - a few
  • Turmeric Powder - 1 tsp
  • Coriander Powder - 2 tsp
  • Chilli Powder - 1 tsp
  • Garam Masala Powder - 1 tsp
  • Salt as appropriate
  • Crushed pepper - as appropriate
  • Oil for cooking.
Step 1: Marinade chicken with a little turmeric and salt and set aside.

Step 2:Heat oil and fry the chopped shallots until they become pale . Add crushed ginger, garlic and green chilli with a little  curry leaves. Saute them until the oil appears at the sides of the pan.
Step 3: Add turmeric, chilli powder, coriander powder and garam masala powder and mix well. Fry for a minute.
Step 4: Add marinated chicken and mix in onion garlic ginger and spice mixture.Reduce heat and keep it covered and let it cook in its own juices.
 Step 5: Stir occasionally until the chicken cooks well . Now add in crushed pepper.Mix well and fry until the chicken pieces get a brown tinge .Toss in a few more curry leaves .

Now that prompts me to make Tomato Rasam and rice for lunch :))
