To begin making Andhra Pepper Chicken Recipe, take a big bowl and marinate the chicken pieces with turmeric powder, ginger garlic paste, salt and lemon juice, mix and keep refrigerated for 30 minutes.
Heat oil in a deep frying pan, once the oil is hot, temper the oil with cinnamon stick, cloves and 3/4 portion of curry leaves and saute it for about 30 seconds.
After 30 seconds, add the chopped onions and saute till they turn golden and start to caramelize.
Once the onions are starting to brown, immediately add chopped green chillies and marinated chicken, saute for about 2 minutes.
Add coriander powder and crushed pepper, mix well and cook on low flame until the curry comes together from sides of the pan. Stirring, intermittently sprinkle water as and when required. This will take about 4 to 5 minutes.
Add about 1/4 cup water, once water starts boiling, reduce the heat and cover. Cook until the chicken is tender and cooked. Once the chicken is soft cooked, open the lid and stir on medium heat till the moisture evaporates .
Sprinkle chopped 3/4 cup of coriander and cook for 2 minutes.
Before serving garnish with 1 teaspoon crushed pepper, 1 teaspoon lemon juice and remaining coriander leaves.
Serve Andhra Pepper Chicken Recipe along with Tawa Paratha Recipe, steamed rice and Andhra Style Pappu Charu Recipe (Lentil Soup Style Curry) for lunch.
