Milagu, kozhi vathakkal / Pepper chicken


I  got this recipe from one of my friend. Thank you Raghavan for this simple and tasty recipe. When I heard about this dish, I am sure it is going to taste great. I do make pepper chicken but in a different way with many spices. But this recipe is very simple without any spices other than pepper. I have heard from my dad that his grandma prepares mutton only with salt and green chillies !!! Even NV when prepared in the simplest possible way,  tastes very yummy and satisfying and this dish is one such example. Try it you will defintely love it :).




Ingredients :

Chicken- 1/2 kg
Onions (preferably shallots)- one cup
Green chillies
Black pepper corns - 2 tbspns
Turmeric powder- 1/4 tspn
Salt to taste
Oil- 4 tbspns (preferably gingelly oil or seasame oil)

Method :

Clean the chicken and cut them into small pieces. Peel and slice the onions. Mince the green chillies. Heat oil in a pan. When the oil is hot enough add the onions, green chillies, salt and turmeric powder. Simmer the flame. Saute the onions until they become soft. Now add the chicken pieces and mix well. Let the chicken cook in a low flame. Mix the onion, chicken mixture frequently. When the chicken is cooked add the coarsely powdered black pepper and mix well. Remove from fire after 2 minutes. A very tasty pepper chicken will be ready. This dish tastes very yummy with hot rice. Try to eat it when you are run dowm with cold or flu, I am sure you will feel better :)

Taste enhancing tips for this recipe : If you need more gravy add more onions . Never add even a drop of water. This dish needs more oil the usual. Cook only in a very low flame and use a heavy bottomed vessel. Freshly ground pepper greatly enhances the taste. Use tender chicken. You can also add lots of curryy leaves. Happy cooking !!!

  11. Dear manju
    This dish is very nice and awesome..very new for me ...thanks for sharing and a thank to Raghaban..
    I do cook mutton with green chili only , but never posted here..instead put the red chili one...
    Devouring authentic chinese food and reminds me of calcutta days of 60s and 70s...those tastes are gone from India long back and replaced by Indo-chinese dishes...One day I had chineses noodle with Garam masala in delhi..imagine !!!
    Many chinese preparations have lots of cinamon though
    My weekend has started at Hong Kong so happy weekend to you before your wishes arrive...( waiting for that )

  15. Viki what you have said is exactly true :). You know what I find many similarities between us in many posts. Perhaps we should try that chilli mutton :). Your name in my blog- I AM HONOURED :)

    Geetha, kandipa senchu parunga...supera irukum :)

    Ushnish sir thanks for your lovely comment :). Hahaha chinese noodles+garam masala = Indo chinese :D. Only after coming here I got to taste the real, authentic Chinese food. I love Chinese and not the fusion forms now. Did you say that the above recipe is Chinese ??? It is an authentic Indian village style preparation :) Thanks for your wishes and have a beautiful weekend !!!
