Instant pot pepper chicken recipe, Instant pot recipes

Pepper chicken is spicy, hot and delicious side dish usually served with rice, roti/ chapati. Pepper chicken is usually prepared with regular chicken or boneless chicken depending on each ones taste. As the name suggests this chicken dish is loaded with freshly ground pepper which makes the dish more tasty and distinct from other chicken gravy/ masala. But for my recipe I have included red chili powder as well, but if you want it to be in traditional style you try adding only pepper powder for spiciness. So as said Instant pot makes any dish faster so is the verdict for this dish as well. This recipe/ post is just a preparation of regular pepper chicken in INSTANT POT that is in a quick way. I have used big onion, which here intends that using more onion yields good taste and good amount of gravy/ masala. The very advantage of this dish is that it can served as semi gravy/ masala/ dry as well, but here i have presented it as thick masala which can can go well with any main dish. So let’s get to the making!

  2. Chop onion finely, chop ginger finely, garlic finely and make slit in green chilli. Keep it aside.
  3. Switch on “SAUTE MODE” in instant pot. Now add oil in the pot then add chopped ginger, garlic, onion and green chilli. Saute well.
  4. When the onions look sauteed and the raw smell of ginger and garlic goes add the chicken pieces, salt, turmeric powder, red chilli powder, coriander powder, cumin powder and garam masala powder. Mix well and let the chicken get coated well in masala. Now add chopped cilantro and mix well.

  7. When the chicken is done add pepper to it and mix well. Switch on “SAUTE MODE” and allow the mixture ti boil well till it gets semi gravy stage. If you want gravy consistency boil the mixture for 1 minute then switch off, I wanted masala consistency let it boil for about 3- 4 minutes. When the desired consistency is reached switch off “SAUTE” mode. Serve it hot with rice, roti or chapati.
Notes
  1. 1. Adding more onions yields more gravy/ masala.
  2. 2. Red chilli powder can be skipped and freshly ground pepper powder can be added for spicines.
  3. 3. If using regular chicken/ more quantity chicken adjust the timing and ingredients accordingly.
