You can serve this pepper chicken with white rice and sambar(not vegetable sambar but milagai killivitta sambar). It also goes very well with chapati.

Thank you guy's for visiting. Try it and give me your comments and suggestions.

Note: Ginger & Garlic paste is made by grinding equal quantities of ginger and garlic.

  1. Hi Priya! Your blog is amazing. Just tried the pepper chicken for lunch today! It was great. Although, it had a bitter taste so cooked some carrots with it to adjust. Why do you think was the bitterness? My guess is that I marinated the chicken with too much lemon juice overnight. Appreciate your effort!

    1. Hi dula,
      Thank you very much for trying pepper chicken. Actually u need not marinate over night. just 30 min is more than enough. Its the lemon that has changed the taste. And also try to reduce little pepper next time it will work out great.

    2. Oh! Super! thanks Priya!
