Karaikudi Chicken Pepper Chops.


This is my Mom's specialty Chettinad Chicken recipe, great to have with hot Chapati or Steamed rice with Rasam.

Ingredients
Chicken pieces-250gms
Onions big( finely chopped)-2
Tomato big( finely chopped)-1
Ginger and Garlic paste-2tbsp
Red chilly powder-2tsp
Coriander powder-2tbsp
Pepper powder-1tsp
Turmeric powder-1/2tsp
Salt to taste
Cinnamon-1"
Cloves-6
Cardamom-3
Roast and grind the following together
Pepper corns-2tsp
Sombhu/ Aniseed/ Fennel seeds-1tsp

Method
Marinade chicken pieces in 1 tsp of ginger and garlic paste, 1tsp red chilly powder and 1/4tsp of turmeric powder for atleast 10 minutes. Heat required oil in a pan add cinnamon, cloves and cardamom, fry until aroma rises. Add the chopped onions, ginger and garlic paste. Stir fry until the raw smell leaves, add the marinaded chicken pieces and fry for few more minutes. Now add the tomatoes and fry until the tomatoes are mashed, add turmeric powder, chilly powder, coriander powder, pepper powder and salt. Fry until masala powder is cooked, add enough water for the chicken to cook, simmer heat, cover with lid and allow the chicken to cook well. When the chicken is done increase the heat and stir until the mixture becomes thick, now add the ground masala and fry for a minute. Serve hot with Chapati or Steamed rice.

Thank you all for your lovely comments!

Yes Vijitha, sometimes i too use ready made masala for instant curries but i feel Sakthi masala is better than Achi masala. I feel Achi products are using artificial chilly flavors. When i eat anything made with Achi masala my stomach burns like ulcer. Now days i am using Sakthi masala products that to occasionally. Homemade masalas are always safe:)
