Assamese style Chicken with Raw banana & Black pepper

Try this simple Chicken curry recipe with raw banana and black pepper . An Assamese style chicken curry recipe I often cook in rainy days.  Raw banana / Green banana (in Assamese -Kaskol ) is very poular in India as many recipes can be made from raw banana like banana kofta curry,  banana pakora , banana chips etc. In Assamese cuisine raw banana is also used to make kaskol pitika( mashed raw banana), Chutney or  fish curries together with skunk vine or curry leaves and black pepper. In this Assamese style Chicken curry with raw banana and black pepper, pepper plays an important role in providing the hot taste. So this dish is good to eat during cool rainy days to heat up your body.
