Pepper chicken

Pepper is one of the most used ingredient of most of the kitchens. But the place from where my hubby belong, KERALA, its the ultimate ingredient. So I tried making this "pepper...y" version of my favorite food .... chicken .....

Try it out with a open heart and empty stomach ... as its gonna be so damn tasty that you wish you dint have any snack before.

Here it goes . . .
chicken pieces (medium size, with bones)- 500 g
Pepper - crushed 4 tbsp
Onion - 1 big, sliced thinly
pepper corns , 4-5 nos
mustard seeds, 1 tsp
cumin seeds, 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder, 1 tsp
red chilly powder, 1 tsp
coriander powder 2 tsp
chicken masala 1 tbsp
Oil, 2 tbsp
Salt , as per need
coriander leaves, for garnishing

Start with putting the pan on the flame, medium heat though. Put the oil and when its hot enough put in the mustard, cumin seeds and also the pepper corns. Now add the sliced onions. When the onion is brown , add all the dry masala's i.e turmeric, coriander, red chilly and chicken masala too. Now add the crushed pepper in it. mix well. Add the chicken pieces in it.Add salt and let the chicken cook in low flame for 10 minutes. Now add some water, just enuff to cover the chicken pieces in it.
Let it cook till the meat is tender and cooked properly. Off the flame and garnish ur pepper chicken with coriander leaves and Serve it with steam rice....
Its good with freshly baked baguette too.
