Chicken Kali Mirch or Murgh Kali Mirch is a spicy chicken curry that is cooked with loads of Black Pepper or kali Mirch. It’s a delicious recipe that goes perfectly well with any Indian bread or rice. Here is how to make Kali Mirch Chicken Recipe at home.
The aroma of fresh ground Black Pepper that flavors the chicken pieces simmering in thick creamy gravy is hard to resist. Although pepper is the main spice in this recipe, this chicken can be tried with subtle other spices to get varied flavors.
In order to give more texture to this gravy, I have used chopped onion pieces, green chillies. Additionally, coriander leaves makes this chicken curry all the more flavourful, so make sure you add it.

Black Pepper, also known as Kalimirch in Hindi is very good for our health. It not only helps in digestion, but it even aids in weight loss. It must be consumed during ear-ache for quick relief.
Furthermore, black pepper reduces the risk of cancer and various cardiovascular diseases as well.
