Pepper Fried Chicken

Chicken time again!!!! That mighty bird litterally gets chopped all the time. I learnt this simple & delicious recipe from my mother. Its not much of a recipe tough. Very simple & easy to make. I cook it more often as an accompaniment with dal & rice.
I did'nt really have the time to make a good presentation of this dish, as I was so very hungry & had to just eat.

This is a must try. I am sure you are gonna like it & yes... cooking this is not a big task too..

I used :

2 chicken drumsticks, cleaned
1/4 tsp turmeric powder
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper powder
1/2 a small cube of chicken bouillon
salt, to taste
1 tsp olive oil (you could use any other cooking oil too)

In a bowl, mix together the turmeric powder, pepper powder, chicken bouillon & salt (be considerate with the salt, as the bouillon already adds some saltiness to the dish).

Make slits all over the chicken pieces using a knife. Apply the marinade mix all over the chicken pieces, rubbing well into the slits. Cover the bowl & set aside for 30 minutes.

In a frying pan, heat oil. Put the chicken pieces in the pan. Cover the pan & lower the flame. Let simmer for 10 minutes. Turn over the chicken pieces, cover & cook again till done. Now, remove the lid of the pan & let the chicken cook for sometime till it gets a little browned & the stock that gets collected around is absorbed.

If you are using more chicken pieces, you will need to fry these in batches.

Enjoy with steamed rice & dal.
