Ghee Roast Pepper Chicken : Berry Peppery
Ghee Roast Pepper Chicken Recipe, Chicken Kali Mirch Recipe
I had been promising my SEO team at Interactive World that I will cook for them one of these days. Just that the day not come and left me with a feeling of guilt every time a team meeting happened. I resolved to make something special for them today. Since the boys are mostly from Orissa, their exposure to spicy South Indian cuisine has been minimal. Hence, I decided to treat them with a pepper chicken roast made in Ghee – Ghee Roast Pepper Chicken recipe or Chicken Kali Mirch recipe. The taste of pepper together with the tanginess of vinegar gives this dish a unique taste. For people who want something spicy and tangy, this dish will go very well.
Four of us polished off 2 kilos of Ghee Roast Pepper Chicken or Chicken Kali Mirch today coupled with some lovely rajma and tandoori rotis from Pahalwan Dhaba Gurgaon. Notwithstanding the sweat emanating because of the spices, the boys told me that they had not tasted something like this ever in their life before. This made my day totally. Do try this sometime and let me know how you fared?
