PEPPER CHICKEN (INDIAN STYLE )





When I was in Bangalore, I often  used to visit  a Andhra restaurant, named Platinum Leaf,nearby my locality.I tried many Andhra  dishes there,but I just can not forgot the taste  of Pepper Chicken. Few days back,I  had tried to make this dish at home and was quite satisfied about the taste. In this chicken curry, pepper plays a major role in providing the hot taste needed. You will get the sharp taste of pepper  while having it.
