Spicy Pepper Chicken ... (almost) the way mommy makes it

Pepper chicken was one think that we relished back home; mommys touch, desi spices and the "naati" koLi sure did make a lot of difference; this recipe that I found on the net sure comes pretty close to it
  • Heat oil(ghee if you can digest it :)) under medium heat in a frying pan.
  • Add crushed garlic cloves(6 to 10) stir for a couple of minutes
  • Add onion(2 nos), green chillies (4 to 6 vertically sliced) and curry leaves to the mixture and stir for a couple more minutes
  • Add chicken(1.5 lbs) and mix well.
  • Lower the heat and cover the pan and let the chicken to cook for about 10 minutes.
  • Add tumeric, salt to taste and mix well.
  • Cook it covered for 5 more minutes
  • Add soya sauce(4 to 5 table spoons) and cook it open on high flame for a few more minutes until the liquid in the pan evaporates.
  • Add pepper powder(2 spoons), lemon juice(2 spoons) and mix well.
  • Garnish with coriander leaves and serve hot.
