Pepper Chicken Kurma

This is my home style recipe...and the specialty is this recipe doesn't include neither coriander powder nor chilly powder, Instead it has a super flavor of Pepper and Coconut.
I have draft this recipe long before but couldn't able to click as i mostly did it for dinner.
Yes, that was a big problem for me...I make most of the varieties for dinner so, i couldn't able to click.

Though we regularly cook chicken at home my blog has very few chicken recipes, i have to to admit that some what i missed to utilize the opportunity properly...From now i planned to post at least one chicken recipe per week.


Chicken - 1/2 kg
Gingely oil - 2 tbsp
Pepper - 4 tsp Can increase as per the spice level.
Poppy seed - 1 tsp
Fennel seed - 1 tsp
Coconut - 1 cup (Hand full)
Onion - 3 nos.
Ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
Salt to taste.


Heat a pan and dry roast fennel seed, pepper & poppy seed.
Add it to coconut and grind it to paste
Heat a oil in a pan add onion and ginger garlic paste and roast it well.
Now add chicken and sauté it to mix well.
Add salt and required amount of water to get the chicken cook soft.
Add the grinded paste and cook until the chicken is done well.

This goes well with any rice, roti or dosai ....tastes more yummy when done in a mud pan...

Notes:I have not added turmeric, if you want you can add.
