Pepper chicken fry is a hot and spicy side dish served with plain rice, chapati, naan, and more. It complements most main dishes and is perfect for cold and gloomy weather.

To make this delicious dish, you only need simple ingredients that are readily available in your kitchen.

Begin by marinating the chicken, using a blend of spices and seasonings. Next, prepare the masala using curry leaves, onions, tomatoes, red chili, coriander, garam masala, and plenty of pepper for that extra kick. Cook the chicken until it becomes tender, and then fry it until the moisture evaporates, leaving the chicken pieces coated with the flavorful masala.

        I tied it exactly the way it was laid out. At the end I garnished it with fried garlic and curry leaves. It came out awesome.
        The only complaint I have is that my fingers got a little sticky. I would have preferred a little more dryness.
