4 chicken drumsticks
1 Tbsp ginger- garlic paste
1 tsp red chili powder
2 Tbsp yogurt
juice of 1 lemon
2 Tbsp coriander stalks, minced
1 tsp black peppercorn
1 tsp coriander seeds
1/2 tsp clove powder
1 tsp fennel seeds


Dry roast the coriander, fennel, black peppercorn for about 2 or 3 minutes. Cool it completely before grinding them coarsely. Then the clove powder
Wash chicken and mix it with ginger-garlic paste, red chili powder, yogurt, lemon juice, coriander stalk and 1 1/2 tsp salt. Now add the ground spice and let it marinate for about an hour before cooking.

Heat oil in a saute pan and sear the chicken drumstick on all side for about 4 to 6 minutes. Then place it in a 350 degree F oven and cook for about 30 to 40 minutes. While cooking check to see if the curry dries out. If so, sprinkle a little water off and on so the chicken does not get dry out. Outer skin should be crisp but inside should be very moist.
