Murg Kali Mirch

Murg Kali Mirch or Black Pepper Chicken, is one simple chicken curry which comes to my mind when someone asks for a simple and easy to make chicken curry. This chicken curry suits those who do not want the hot spices but a chicken curry on lighter notes of spices.

This simple recipe was recently made by partner who loves his chicken and because my daughter also loves chicken, idea was to cook a chicken which is not spicy but still flavoursome. The name suggests there is black pepper in the curry, which is true, however black pepper gives a kind of spice it is more flavourful, rather than spicy and the effect of spice is nullified by adding cream and yogurt, which also means this recipe is unfortunately not suitable for vegans out there (of course they can ignore the dairy bits in the recipe, but then it won’t give this chicken curry the taste it should have).

Its a pure co-incidence that I am drafting this recipe during the National Curry Week, here in UK. A perfect curry to celebrate this curry week.
