Recently we had this in our friend’s house during our coonoor trip, everyone in our house loved it. I was asking for the recipe, and poorni told the ingredients was only chicken and pepper. Again I am across one of the recipe which was the same as she told me, so planned to try this recipe today in a refreshed mood after a week. he dish was good, chicken was juicy and the house was filled with pepper and butter aroma. I made in small quantity and it was vanished in minutes. A finger licking dish and everyone must try.
