  1. Place chili peppers, cumin seed, ginger-garlic paste, salt, turmeric, lime juice, and cilantro into a blender. Puree until the cilantro is very finely chopped, then add yogurt, and puree until smooth. Pour over the chicken drumsticks in a resealable plastic bag, and mix to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator at least 2 hours.
  2. To cook, heat vegetable oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Stir in onion, and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the chicken and marinade, and bring to a simmer. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the drumsticks are tender, 30 to 40 minutes.

Fantastic recipe - a definite keeper! I used red bell pepper (with the seeds) instead of a green chile pepper (only because red were on special!) and the taste was quite good. I also ended up ad...

I made this with skinless bone-in thighs. I didn't bother pureeing the marinade/sauce - just diced it up really finely, and added a little more yogurt. This turned out very tender and flavorful....

It is spicy and good. Everything came out just as it should. I just do not think I would make for my toddler and manly man again. It just did not suit our taste. He did not say he did not li...

Very flavourful, very easy. You don't need recipes to be better than this.

Very delicious recipe. I fried the onions light golden brown. Will add it to my family recipe book collection. Thanks
