Pepper chicken recipe, How to make pepper chicken

Pepper chicken (milagu chicken) is a spicy, flavorful and delicious dish where chicken is cooked and simmered with loads of freshly ground black pepper in onion based masala. Pepper chicken can be made in gravy, semi gravy or masala form. So this particular recipe is a pepper chicken masala which goes well with rice, roti and chapati. I posted the gravy version of this recipe 2 years back and someone requested me to post the masala version of it a month back, which I completely forgot. Recently I was reminded of that request so I prepared it the very same day and thought to to share the same without much delay. I have also heard from few saying pepper chicken is also available as appetizer, which I have not tasted personally when I get a chance to relish it surely will post that recipe as well. For this recipe I used freshly ground pepper and not the store bought ones as it gives more flavors and freshness to the dish. This dish requires lot of onion for making enough masala so add onions according to the chicken quantity. Since the weather is super cold, consuming any hot beverage or fried snack or anything made with pepper will really boost us up so I hope this recipe shall be one among that. So lets get to the making!!
