Kozhi Mizhagu Pirattal | Chicken Pepper Roast

Kozhi Mizhagu Pirattal is a spicy dish made with King of Spices - Pepper. This side dish goes well with Rasam, Sambar etc., and has its own unique taste. When we need to avoid dishes with Chillies or Chilly Powder  my Mom would prepare this dish. Everyone used to loved it.It is so peppery and has a unique taste which cannot be missed.I had served with rasam and it was really good..In this dish pepper is the only stuff added for spiciness so add more pepper corns if you want it more spicy. Normally once the chicken is cooked I take out little for shweets and then add more crushed pepper...Try out !!!
