Pepper Chicken Kuzhambu

Pepper Chicken Kuzhambu , a chicken dish made using sambhar powder.Yes, that's correct sambhar powder.I got this recipe (again) through a TV show and got curious to use sambhar powder on chicken dish which I have never done before.This dish came out really well :)

What you need
Chicken - 1 whole chicken cut in small pieces
Onion - 1 big onion (chopped)
Tomato -  2 small (chopped)
Pepper powder - 2tsp
Ginger Garlic powder  - 2 tbsp
Sambar powder - 2 1/2 tsp
Jeera powder - 1 tsp
Garam Masala powder  - 2 tsp
Salt - as needed
Oil - 2 tbsp
Curry Leaves  - a few
To grind the ingredients listed below into a fine paste
Coconut - 3tbsp
Tomato - 1 small
Green chillies - 2
How you will make
In a pan, heat oil on medium and add chopped onions and fry until they are soft.Now add garama masala, curry leaves,chopped tomatoes and slit green chillies (optional) and saute till they are soft.Now add GG paste and fry until raw smell is gone.Now add sambar powder , salt and saute for few more minutes.Add grinded coconut paste and let it boil until you can see the oil on the edges.Now add chicken pieces (and salt if needed).Add just enough water to this gravy and let the chicken pieces cook.Finally when the gravy gets to proper consistency and chicken is cooked, add the pepper powder and jeera powder.Let this sit on medium flame for another 4-5 minutes and switch off the flame.Serve hot with rice/roti.
