Spicy Pepper Chicken - Dry

Cooking Time : 30 mins
Serves            : 2

Dry Pepper Chicken is one of my favorite Starter which I enjoy in restaurants especially Thalappakattu Restaurant. Tempering this recipe with Cashewnuts gives special taste to this recipe. Just give a try.

Chicken (Boneless)                            250 gms
Turmeric powder                               1/4 tsp
Salt                                                        To Taste                                        
Pepper powder                                    2 tsp
Green Chillies/ Red Chillies                   4
Cashew nuts                                         5
Curry leaves                                         1 strand

Soya Sauce                                           2 tsp Optional      



  1. In a cooking pan, add chicken, turmeric powder, salt, 1/2 cup of water and cook till the water evaporates and the chicken is tender.
  2. In a seperate pan, heat ghee in low flame and add curry leaves, Red chillies and cashew nuts and fry till the cashew becomes light brown.
  3. Add chicken, pepper and cook till the pepper is mixed with chicken and the chicken becomes dry.
  4. Add 1 tsp soya sauce and stir well till the sauce is well coated to chicken and remove from the flame.

  • You can add more pepper if you want more spicy.
  • Adding Soya sauce gives you good flavour.
