Give us some fried chicken legs and you can find P and I hopping all over the place, licking and devouring till the final bone!!! We love eating messy when it comes to a Chicken leg 😛 As a kid, I used to quarrel with my younger sister for getting this piece whenever Mom made chicken at home or when Dad brought in some packed food.
Chicken legs make a delicious entrée whether it is fried, breaded or marinated. Serve them at a gathering, it appeals to almost everyone.
This recipe also consists of adding little sauce that makes the drumsticks lip-smacking delicious.
Chicken legs- 2, Yogurt – 2tsp, Chili powder – 2tsp, Pepper powder – 1tsp, Ginger Garlic paste – 1tsp, Lemon Juice – 2tsp, Turmeric powder- a pinch, Onions – 1/2 sliced into circles, Salt to taste, Cumin powder – 1tsp, Coriander powder – 1/2tsp, Coconut Oil – 4 to 5tsp, Curry leaves – few, Tomato Sauce – 2tsp, Chili Sauce – 1tsp
Clean the chicken legs and make a small 4-5 slits on each leg piece. In a small bowl, add chili powder, salt, little turmeric and lemon juice to it and mix well to form a paste. Marinate the drumsticks stuffing the paste into the slits made. Keep aside for a few minutes.
In another bowl, add yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, pepper powder, salt, cumin powder, coriander powder and a tsp of oil. Mix well into a paste.
