Tangdi kabab or grilled chicken drumstick is a yummy starter/appetizer. Chicken tastes yummy and tender because of the flavorful and spicy marinade. For this chicken I used green masala paste along with spices and yogurt for the marinade. I made a small portion with four chicken drumsticks.Try this,you will surely love it.
Chicken Drumsticks- 4
Hung curd- 1/2 cup
Chilly powder- 1/2 tsp
Turmeric powder- 1/2 tsp
Gram flour-3 tbs
Garam masala- 1 tsp
( use regular garam masala and for extra flavor add a pinch of
Ajwain, amchur/dry mango powder and dry ginger powder)
Chaat masala- a pinch
To make a paste
Coriander leaves- 1/3 cup chopped
Green chilly- 5-6
Ginger- 1inch thick
Garlic- 6-8 cloves
oil- 3 tsp
salt to tate
Marinate chicken with salt, hung curd,chilly powder and turmeric powder. Set this aside for at least half and hour. For best results marinate over night in the refrigerator.
In a pan dry roast gram flour till there is a nice aroma. Roasting adds a nutty flavor to the gram flour. Allow this to cool down.
Make a paste of coriander leaves, mint leaves, ginger, garlic and green chilly. Spread this paste evenly over the chicken along with garam masala, roasted gram flour,oil and a pinch of salt.Keep aside for another 30 minutes.
Pre heat oven to 350 degree f . Take a baking pan and line with aluminum foil (for easy clean up) and place a wire rack on top of the pan.Place marinated chicken on top of the rack and bake for 25-30 minutes. If there is excess oil or masala it will drip to the pan below while baking.Once done you can also place on a hot grill pan and cook for one minute on both side to attain a desired crispness but this step is optional.
Hope you will all enjoy!
