Bored of the same old chicken curry recipe every week? With this new black pepper chicken curry recipe, you can switch up the taste and flavour to help keep everyone happy. This chicken kali mirch curry is a black pepper chicken curry. A luscious rich chicken soaked in a creamy gravy masala. An ideal twist on a chicken curry. This kali mirch chicken curry is ready to prepare with simply pantry spices, perfect if you have never cooked a curry before. Inviting and irresistible, succulent chicken pieces in a thick gravy sauce pair amazingly with homemade naan bread.
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 or kali mirch murgh 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, but never mind. Not sure if salt does. I have no idea what salt is even classed as.
I originally made this recipe for my mum and myself. My mum cannot handle spice and I am not supposed to be eating spicy food. 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 masala gravy tastes so good as well. You could add some tomatoes as well, but it’s up to you.
In all of my curry recipes I only ever use fresh garlic and ginger. My mum forbids me from using the paste versions. However, if you want to you can use ginger paste and garlic paste. In this recipe you can replace the garlic cloves with 1 teaspoon of garlic paste.
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.
