Assalaamu alaikum wa rahmatullahi wa barakaathu everyone!

Now if you’re Pakistani then you probably have a very high tolerance for spice. Literally everything in our household is spiced up, from the classic recipes of macaroni cheese to lasagne to pasta. We cannot eat unless we dash in a bucket load of spice. However obviously spice all the time will take its toll on you, so this black pepper chicken curry is here to change that.

This kali mirch murgh curry is my take on how to take some black pepper chicken and turn it into a curry. Turns out it is an actual thing, but I am going to pretend I came up with the idea. I know technically black pepper counts as a spice (not sure if salt does), but it isn’t as damaging as the other spices.

I originally made this recipe for my mum, because my mum cannot really handle spice as well as the rest of us can. If you’re the same, then this chicken curry is for you. I personally love it. Even without the addition of spices this chicken curry recipe taste delicious. The onion gravy tastes so good as well. You could add some tomatoes as well, but it’s up to you.

This black pepper chicken curry, otherwise known as kali mirch murgh, is perfect for curry lovers that want a little bit less spice in their life.
