Pepper Chicken / Pepper Chicken Gravy / Pepper Chicken Masala

June 20, 2016 Motions and Emotions 15 Comments

I have not shared chicken recipes for quite sometime now. No it's not that we are not eating chicken but I have not tried any new dish for a long time. We already welcomed monsoon in Bangalore so thought of making something very spicy during these rainy nights. I remember about pepper chicken which we often order at restaurant. Normally, pepper chicken comes in dry version as starter however few restaurant also keeps the gravy version. I tried the gravy version as we decided to have roti for dinner. Usually, I do not prefer spicy dishes but I love the spiciness of black pepper which I think is a divine taste.
In few restaurants they add dry coconut in the gravy of pepper chicken masala but we do not prefer it, so avoided it completely. If you wish you can add it....

Pepper Chicken / Pepper Chicken Gravy / Pepper Chicken Masala

Chicken - 1/2 kg
Onion - 2 big size, chopped
Ginger Paste - 2 paste
Garlic Paste - 1 teaspoon
Curry Leaves - 7 to 8
Coriander Powder - 2 teaspoon
Black Pepper Powder - 1 tablespoon
Turmeric Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Garam Masala Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Green Chilli - 2 to 3
Salt to taste
Red Chilli Powder - 1/2 teaspoon
Tomato - 1 medium, chopped
Refined oil - 4 to 5 tablespoon


1. Marinate the chicken with salt for half an hour.
2. Heat oil in a pan and add curry leaves followed by chopped onions.
3. Once the onions are translucent add the chicken pieces. Reduce the flame and once the chicken pieces turn white in colour add ginger and garlic paste and green chilli.
4. After sometime add all the dry spices (turmeric, red chilli, salt, coriander) and hald of the pepper powder. Mix them well and allow them to cook covering with a lid. Stir in between to avoid burning at the bottom.
5. Next add chopped tomatoes, garam masala powder and remaining black pepper powder. Cook until tomatoes are soft.
6. Add 11/2 cup of water  and boil for 10 minutes.  If required you can add little more water for gravy before boiling it. Switch off the gas and serve hot with roti or naan.
