We Indians are known for spicy curries, with a lot varieties available in different states. There are curry recipes that are followed in the families, very special to them and we have a lot of recipes that we prepare in our family too.

Pepper Masala – To grind

This is one such spicy curry, made with loads of pepper which is good for health and coconut to counter all the heat in the curry. Let’s not forget the flavor that comes from the whole dried red chilli and fresh coriander leaves.

The recipe calls for your blender to come out the cupboard – to grind the masala paste that includes the fresh coconut, pepper, cumin seeds, dried red chilli and fresh coriander leaves. This paste is the base for the curry, that doesn’t have tomatoes in them. If you cannot find fresh coconut, use coconut milk when you make the paste.

You also need ginger garlic paste for this – grind some peeled cloves of garlic and a large piece of ginger into a paste and keep them aside.

In this recipe I have used hard boiled eggs, added at the last stage on the cooking. You can substitute eggs with chicken or lamb but those need to be added in the saute stage, in the beginning before adding the masala paste.

Other than the above steps, where you need to make paste and grind stuff the rest of the recipe is so easy and will come together in no time.

Please note the addition of ginger garlic paste in the oil will make the stuff to get stuck to the pan, but no worries it will all come off the pan as the curry cooks.

This curry needs hot steamed rice or flat breads like chapati, naan etc., to go with and the taste is just so addictive despite the heat in it.
