This is a fantastic recipe which could be taken with rice or indian breads. This is an aunthentic Indian recipe. This is also called as Chettinad chicken or pepper chicken.

ginger garlic paste - 2 tsp
To season:

oil - 2 tbsp
onion - 2 (finely chopped)
tomato - 2 (finely chopped)
To garnish:

corriander leaves - 2 - 3 tbsp (chopped)


- marinate the chicken with all the ingredients to marinate and leave it in the fridge for 2 hrs.
- then pressure cook the marinated chicken with 1/2 cup of water until done
- add oil in a pan and add the onions
- fry till the onions turn brown
