CHICKEN RECIPES - PEPPER CHICKEN - Indian style Pepper Chicken


                Today am going to share with you the recipe of my all time favorite Pepper chicken roast in Indian style. Pepper chicken is a South Indian popular spicy dish. I also love the Chinese style pepper chicken recipe, will share the recipe soon.  The Indian style pepper roast is one of the chicken dishes which I often love to cook when I am late in the kitchen. An easy, quick and spicy dish with a peppery taste which I liked the most. I just love to cook and eat dishes using pepper than red chili powder. I used freshly powdered pepper and fennel seed in this dish which enhances the flavor of this dish. More over, I just skipped using tomatoes in this dish which will give a reddish texture instead used curd and adding pepper powder for final garnishing together makes this dish very special.  So hope you all try this dish once and don't forget to drop your valuable feedback. Hope you all will surely enjoy my special Indian version of Pepper chicken roast.
