How to make Andhra Pepper Chicken

  1. Marinate the chicken piece with turmeric powder, ginger - garlic paste, salt and 2 tablespoons of lemon juice, mix and keep this in the fridge for 30 minutes.
  2. Heat oil in a deep pan, temper the oil with cinnamon stick, cloves and 3/4 portion of curry leaves.
  3. Add chopped onions and cook till they turn golden.
  4. Add chopped green chillies and the marinated chicken, sauté for 2 minutes.
  5. Add coriander powder and crushed pepper, mix well and cook on low flame until the oil gets separated, stir and sprinkle some water if required.
  6. Add 1/4 cup water, once water will start boiling, reduce the heat and cover with the lid. Cook until chicken is done. Once chicken is soft/cooked. Open the lid and cook till the moisture evaporates.
  7. Sprinkle chopped 3/4 th of the coriander leaves and the remaining curry leaves.
  8. Before serving garnish with 1 teaspoon of crushed pepper, 1 teaspoon of Lemon Juice and the remaining coriander leaves.
  9. Serve with hot steamed rice.
My Tip: I always prefer to use crushed black pepper instead of ready made pepper powder, this way, you will get the fresh aroma of black pepper.
