    Add in the marinated chicken. Mix well, 1 teaspoon add coconut vinegar, cover and cook. If there is water allow it to evaporate on high heat.


    Open, and add ½ teaspoon Thillai’s Malabar Black Pepper Powder and mix well.


    Let the chicken dry roast on low flame for another 5 minutes or until it becomes blackish brown in color. Make sure that you stir/mix it well, so that it does not stick to the bottom of the kadai.


    Lastly sprinkle curry leaves and give a nice stir.
