Recently my son asked me to invent a new chicken recipe using Capsicum as all the usual chicken recipes seem boring to him. So I created this dish and got praising words from my family. And this dish turned out as one of the favourite dish for my family. The capsicum creates that magical touch!

குடமிளகாய் சில்லி சிக்கன்

Finely sliced onion-3
Boneless chicken pieces-750 gms
Turmeric powder- half sp
Shredded ginger- 1 tsp
Small garlic flakes- 6
Curd- 4 tbsp
Salt to taste
Garam masala powder- halt sp
Ajinomoto- half sp
Gram flour- 1 tsp
Chilli powder- 2 1/2 tsp
Capsicum juliennes- half cup
Oil- 4 tbsp

Grind these to a coarse paste:

Small tomato-1, peppercorns- 1 tsp, fennel seeds- half sp, and coriander leaves- half cup


Soak the chicken pieces with the garam masala pr, chilli powder, turmeric powder, gram flour and ajinomoto with enough salt for half an hour.
Heat a pan and pour the oil.
Add the sliced onion and fry them to golden brown.
Then add the ginger and the garlic and fry for a few seconds.
Add the curds with the chicken.
Cook on medium fire until it is half done.
Add the capsicum and cook for a few seconds.
Then add the coarse paste and cook until the chicken pieces are fully cooked and the gravy is thickened finely.
