Pepper chicken recipe is a spicy south indian style chicken curry which is quite popular in andhra, tamil and kerala region.
It is a spicy chicken recipe perfectly suitable to make during winters and rainy. I have shared many chicken recipes which are fried versions, curries, korma recipes all made with chicken.
This pepper chicken is a semi gravy and semi dry version of pepper chicken made totally in south indian style.
It has got lots of pepper powder, onions, tomatoes and some dry spices added into it. Since it’s made in south indian style we also add curry leaves into the chicken curry.
In tamil and kerala states it’s a very special recipe found in hotels and restaurants and this dish is served more than any other south indian non veg dish in south india.
Since here rains are occurring frequently I have made this pepper chicken to have it with plain white rice or steamed rice or roti.
Eating pepper chicken in rains with rice gives a pleasant feeling and when we want to eat something spicy this is the perfect recipe to be made.
It takes in only simple ingredients that are easily available at home and if required we can even skip pepper powder or increase or decrease the quantity of pepper powder in the recipe.
