Chicken Drumsticks kurma

Any curry with chicken drumsticks (I'll call them, Kodi Kallu- Murgi legs  just for fun! ) are my hubby's favorite. Chicken is a good source of protein, we can make it even more healthy by trimming fat and skin from the meat we cook. One day while watching TED videos (For them who do not know about these videos, they are like the research or survey presentations done by the individual people. The bottom line is, it is a platform where the people present their inventions and discoveries) one Indian teenage girl found out that chicken marinated with lemon juice at least for one hour reduced the amount of carcinogens(Cancer causing agents) in it. So, friends let us marinate the chicken and have it.
Ingredients for marination:
Chicken legs---7
salt to taste
chili powder---1ts
coriander powder--1ts
Lemon juice---4ts
Ginger garlic paste-2ts
Salt to taste

For curry:
Onions chopped half cup
Chopped Ginger and garlic-1ts each
tomatoes chopped-1cup

Masala preparation:
Roast Whole garam masala (Cloves 4 + Cinnamon stick 1big + cardamom 3) in a fry pan
Take This roasted garam masala in a grinder jar along with 2ts of coriander powder +3ts of til/sesame/nuvvulu + Coconut powder 1ts , cashewnuts 1/4cup and grind the mixture to a fine powder.

  • Clean and wash the chicken drumsticks and make 3-4 deep cuts on each side of the drumstick so that they get perfectly marinated.
  • Now prepare the marination mixture with the above stated ingredients and drop the chicken pieces in the marination and allow them to marinate for 2-3hrs in a refrigerator.
  • Remove them from the refrigerator, and let them come down to room temperature.
  • Now take a skillet and heat 3-4 ts of butter/ ghee/ olive oil/ vegetable oil and add the marinated chicken pieces to the oil and cook them by closing the lid.
  • Cook by turning the pieces like this for about 15-20 min, until the chicken is half cooked.
  • Now add onions and cook them until they turn transparent, after the onions are done add tomatoes and cook until they become mushy.
  • Add curd/yogurt and mix well. Beat curd before adding it into curry. After few minutes add red chili powder and salt to taste.
  • Cook for few more minutes under simmer by closing the lid.
  • Now finally garnish with cilantro and the curry is ready to serve.
