Kozhi Milagu Masala/Pepper Chicken Masala

I flipped through the pages of my pretty old diary, something fell down. It was a photograph that throws a smile at me every time I see it. A frozen moment of me peeping from behind daddy who was taking his daughter for a proud ride on his bike. I closed my eyes to recall those memories imprinted inside. The bike’s unique kick start sound makes me nostalgic ha-ha-ha. Passing through the green pastures of my small native village, wrapping his belly with my small hands; To be honest, I only half-heard all his bike time stories and advices. My focus was all the time on the things that seem like moving fast with me. That old faded photograph just brought back my evergreen fresh memories. Just then Lord reminded me that, Our Journey is just like that bike Journey. Keep your ears open to My words and not to the worldly things that pass by. Nailed, is’nt it ? 🙂


The perfect rains outside my windows helped me perfect my pepper chicken recipe. Dish#2 on Christmas Series. Check dish#1 here. This meat dish itself is a perfect medicine for cold.  A delicious spicy chicken gravy that goes well with roti/idlis/rice.
