South-Indian style Pepper Chicken Fry Recipe | Tamilnadu Milagu Kozhi Varuval

pepper-chicken-fry-south-indian-style-1




You can give some rest to your woolen sweaters this winter for this “hot and spicy pepper chicken curry” will give you all the warmth. The husband totally fell for this delicious chicken curry. I am sure; he fell not just for its color and taste, but for its “Vicks vaporub” action too. Yeah, if the roasted onions and garlic cloves in the dish gives the warm smell, and if the tomatoes and the lime adds a tangy taste, it is the “roasted pepper” that soothes a tough throat suffering from cough and cold. You sure can feel the remedy as when the chicken slides down your throat. The hot pepper curry goes in and your cold comes out Smile (so have a tissue paper ready Smile with tongue out). A very very simple “pepper chicken fry recipe” this is. Reason 1: “NO-marination” required; Reason 2: NO coconut required. This version of chicken pepper fry is different from how my mom usually makes the koli varuval (Chicken fry) at home.

Recipe source: Not me, but my mom got interested in watching cookery shows once I told her that I’m “Shelving Recipes” in my blog. She dictated this Pepper Chicken Fry recipe over the phone and I noted it down in my Kitchen notepad. I made this pepper chicken twice since my mom shared the recipe Smile.

I am hosting a “No-Mokkai day” today in my blog since the recipe has no “behind the scenes” story to it. Fine, I see some of my regular readers cheering up the moment I said “no-mokkai” Hot smile. You can scroll down to see “how to make Chicken Pepper Fry”. [By the way hon, by “no-mokkai” I did not mean that I totally abandoned the story telling habit. That will continue for the many other non-veg recipes that I’ve queued to shelf in my blog Vampire bat(sinister laugh……)]



How to make Pepper Chicken Fry – with step by step pictures
(Please click each image to enlarge the photos)

Step 1.
Clean the chicken. [Once I’m done cleaning the chicken with water, I use 2 tsp. sesame oil and 1 tsp. turmeric powder to mix with the chicken and wash them one last time before it’s used for cooking]. If your chicken pieces are big, cut them into medium size pieces.
Pepper Chicken Fry|Milagu Kozhi varuval| Tamilnadu style Dry pepper chicken fry recipe|chicken pepper fry recipe Indian style 
Step 2.
Set the ingredients to make the chicken pepper ready on the kitchen table. Keep a dry wok on the stove in medium flame. Add the black pepper and fennel seeds. Dry roast them until the pepper gives a popping sound and the fennel seeds turn slightly golden. This steps takes around 8 minutes.

Step 3.
Once the fennel seeds turn golden and the black pepper release the roasted aroma, add cumin seeds. Roast until the cumin seeds release a nice flavorful smell (identifiable by the slightly enlarged size of the cumin seeds). Cumin seeds gets roasted very quickly. Takes about 2-3 minutes. Once done switch off the stove.

Step 4.
Cool down the roasted spices. Until then we’ll finish the chopping jobs. Peel, wash and chop the onion. Wash and cut the tomato. Wash the curry leaves spring. Cut the fresh coriander leaves. Keep the cut vegetables aside. Peel the garlic cloves and remove the ginger skin. Grind them together without adding water. We do not need a smooth paste, blend just until you do not see any big chunks of garlic/ginger inside the mixie jar. Keep the freshly ground ginger-garlic paste aside.

Step 5.
Once the roasted spices are cooled to room temperature, grind (crush) them in the mixie for few seconds. Again, we do not need a nice powder. We need a coarsely ground powder. Whir them for about 5 seconds.

Step 10.
Add water (1/2 to 3/4 cup should do fine. Just up to the level of the chicken) and mix well. Close the wok with a lid and cook the chicken. Once the chicken is cooked (takes about 10-12 minutes), open the lid and mix the content well. Cook without the lid until the chicken absorbs almost all the sauce (water).

Close the lid and reduce the flame to low (sim) and leave it closed until the tomato juice is completely absorbed by the chicken. Once the chicken turns dry, switch off the flame.

3Ts [ Tips | Tricks | Tactics and Secrets ] to make Pepper Chicken Fry

  1. Take care that you do not roast the spices too much because they’ll get bitter in taste.
  2. Do not add too much water, else the chicken will get over-cooked and you’ll end up with “Chicken Idlicha Varuval” instead of chicken milagu varuval Winking smile. Chicken gets cooked just with the juice of its own. So, 1/2 to 3/4 cup of water should suffice for the quantity mentioned in this recipe.
  3. Curry leaves add great flavor to this chicken curry. Do not miss adding them.
  4. Actually guys, you know what. The chicken tastes amazing like a simple gravy at Step 10. itself. But had I said that in Sep 10, you probably might not be having any chicken left to proceed with Step 11 Hot smile.
  5. You can try Vegetarian version of Chicken pepper fry with Colon/mushrooms, paneer/cottage cheese, cauliflower, Soya chunks etc.

Dear Readers,
Sure the recipe tastes far great than the pictures shown. To show you the process in making the recipe with step-by-step pictures and to show you the outcome of the recipes with some cool photographs, I spend quite a lot of time in photographing it without minding the food getting dry or limp or not-so-hot-enough for us to eat (or sometimes without minding that we are hungry :)

But your comments can make me forget all my tiresome efforts I spend in deciding, preparing, cooking, shooting and composing a recipe post just for you! If you find the recipe useful please leave us a comment. I would also like to know if you tried the recipe and if the recipe came out well. Even if it didn’t, tell me that. I can guess or figure out what might have gone wrong or if I missed out to put any essential points in my recipe post. You can share the pictures of the tried recipes in our Facebook page or you can e-mail us!

Thank you for your visit.
Read more. Try out our recipes. Eat well!

  • http://cooking.jingalala.org/ Mangala Meenakshi

    he he keerthi, it’s turmeric powder and not tamarind powder. I was shocked if I wrote the recipe wrong on reading your comment.
    Just keep it that way only for 2 to 3 minutes and then wash once with water. If chicken has too much raw smell, this trick will take out little of the smell.

    First of all, let me appreciate your patience to photograph the entire cooking process and then come here and post them step by step. Thanks very much for the recipe.
    I’ve adulterated your recipe, though. :) We’ve found that cumin seed is a bit overwhelming in your suggestion of black pepper corns:saunf; jeera ground mix (3:2:2 ratio). So, we’ve settled for 5:3:2) to our liking.
    Cheers!

  • Kshitij

    Hi mangala,
    Recipes are a dime a dozen on the net; There are also quite a few folks who show the passion for cooking that is very much evident in your blog. But where you really take the cake is in the beauty of your articulation and instruction.
    For a north indian man with hardly any experience of cooking food in general, who would like to take a jab at cooking , but has no exposure to south indian food, your blog is a fantastic way to sample the amazing food we get down south. A lot of people gloss over the small bits, understandably because save for greenhorns like me, most people know the basic steps and fundamentals of cooking. But your recipes don’t, and that gives me the confidence to step in the kitchen and try my hand.
    Pictures are a huge plus too, since i now know how the dish should be looking through the cooking lifecycle.
    So a big thumbs up and a big thank you!
    Warm Regards,
    Kshitij

    P.S: It’s Sivakasi Mutton Kuzhambu this Sunday ..better start with the small stuff :)

    • http://cooking.jingalala.org/ Mangala Meenakshi

  • Sayantan Datta

    Add a little bit of Garam Massala (any of the boxed branded variety and add a little beer (any mild brand) towards the end – give the dust a nice flavour.

    Also add some (1/2) finely mashed potato at the very end – this balances the spiciest well.

    Hi Mangala,
    Your recipe seemed simple and the photos looked yumm.. So decided to try it out today for my daughter to feast on. It was such simple cooking that it got done in a flash. And then the gentle simmering and …..the drool inducing aromas wafted across our home. it came out pretty much true to your fotos and tasted fiery and yumm too. Went down well with the biryani .
    Can’t believe that so simple a recipe creates such an awesome dish. Thanks lady and thanks to your mum too ( source to be thanked too!)
    Keep on posting such recipes and watch your fan base grow… Thanks once again
