Chicken Pepper Fry - Coorg

Coorgi food is one of my favourite cuisines ! It's a distinct and unusual cuisine because their dishes are sort of tangy and spicy at the same time ! My friend Shonali and her mother Taj have shared some of their family recipes with me and I have always loved everything they cook. For those who haven't yet been to Coorg, its a fabulous and beautiful place!


1 medium sized chicken cut into pieces

1 teaspooon turmeric
1 tablespoon rice flour
Pepper 1 tbsp (ground with water)

1 large onion (sliced fine)

1 big pod garlic (peeled and crushed)

1 ½ tbsp Oil for seasoning

Grind together

¼ tsp jeera (cumin seeds)

4 – 5 cloves

8 – 9 garlic cloves

½" piece fresh ginger

a few whole small madras onions

3 – 4 slit green chillies

2 Tbsp Coriander (chopped)


Heat oil, fry garlic and onions till translucent

Add marinated chicken, fry and cover. Cook on slow fire, adding water if necessary

When chicken is cooked, add ground masala, whole onions and green chillies. Continue to cook on slow fire.

Add the chopped coriander when done
