Step-by-step instructions to cook

Prep

1

Marinate chicken with ginger garlic paste, turmeric, and salt. Set it aside until needed.

Cooking

1

In a hot pan, pour oil and add cumin, cinnamon, cloves, and cardamom. Allow them to sizzle.

2

Next, add curry leaves and ginger garlic paste and saute until the raw smell of the paste disappears.

3

Add onions and fry until they turn golden.

4

Then, add tomatoes and salt. Fry until the tomatoes become mushy and soft.

5

Add red chili powder, garam masala, and coarsely crushed peppercorns and fry everything well until the mixture loses all its moisture.

6

Add the marinated chicken and fry for about 3 to 4 minutes.

7

Cover and cook on low flame until the chicken becomes tender. If the chicken doesn't release enough moisture to cook, add a little water. If you prefer gravy, cover and cook until the chicken is soft. For a dry version, cook without a lid to evaporate the moisture in the chicken. Fry until all the moisture dries up.

8

Serve pepper chicken hot and squeeze in some lemon juice before serving.
