  2. Make Kali Mirch Chicken

    • In a large heavy bottomed pan, add oil and heat. Add cloves, black cardamom, whole black peppercorns, and green cardamom and cook until they are aromatic.
    • Add the onion paste and cook for about 8 to 10 minutes.
    • Follow by adding the ginger-garlic paste and cook until the raw taste and aroma of the paste disappears, or for about 2 minutes.
    • Add the chicken and fry for about 6 to 8 minutes on high heat.
    • Add the coriander powder, cumin powder and 3 to 5g salt, and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
    • Lower the heat, add the Curd and mix well. If you add the Curd on high heat, it can split. Cook for about 3 to 4 minutes.
    • Add 100 ml water and black pepper powder, and cook till oil separates at the corners.
    • Add the remaining 100 ml of water and cover. Cook till the chicken is tender.
    • Add lemon juice, honey, and coarse black pepper powder and cook for 2 minutes.
