Original recipe yields 8 drumsticks

Directions

  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.

Very delicious! I tried this, didn't have any chillies so I used hot pepper, I also kicked up the yogurt to 2 tbsps instead of 1 as well as the ginger garlic paste. I seasoned my chicken "twice". Basically I seasoned it turmeric, chilli powder, salt and about 3 tablespoons of ginger-garlic paste and allowed it to sit overnight; then on the day I was gonna prepare it, I made the marinade as per the instructions with the exceptions noted above and let it soak for about 4 hours. I added some cumin seeds before the onions, then basically followed the instructions.

This was delicious. Even my father, who highly prefers traditional Punjabi cuisine, enjoyed this chicken and had seconds. Note: I had to add a few tablespoons of water towards the end, as the chicken was not fully cooked and was beginning to stick to the pan. Also added a pinch more salt and cilantro for extra flavor. Marinating over night helped too. So easy! A definite keeper :) Thank you for this recipe.

This recipe is quite easy and has great flavor. I would recommend marinating the chicken overnight for a fuller flavor. Tasted great with potato/peas/onion side dish with cumin and garlic. Will make this one again.
