Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks

Tandoori Chicken Drumsticks

Yummy chicken legs grilled until moist and tender with a crispy browned surface. So simple but it allows the original chicken taste to come through with a touch of spicy and tangy flavor.

It can be a very good side dish or can be served in hi teas.

  • 1 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped

  • 1 tsp paprika
  • 1/2 tsp red chilly powder
  • 1 tsp salt or per taste
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 tsp ground coriander
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

PREPARATION

  1. In a large bowl, mix together the yogurt, garlic, ginger, lemon juice, all spice powder powder, paprika, red chilli powder,cumin and coriander, salt and pepper.
