SPICY n TANGY BAKED CHICKEN DRUMETTES

This is my hubby's favorite baked chicken drumettes.The skin is removed and the chicken is marinated in a splendid spice combination of coriander pdr,garam masala,gin-gar paste ,yogurt and baked in high temperature for 20-25 mins.A touch of chaat masala on top gives it a perfect tanginess.The flavor is so good that it keeps us wanting for more!!!

Another post for the recipe marathon which is still running strong.


INGREDIENTS


Drumettes - 6 pieces,skin removed

onion - 1/4 piece of a large onion

red chilli pdr - 1 1/2 tsp

paprika - 1 tsp

gin- gar paste - 1 1/2 tsp

curd - 3 tbsp

coriander pdr - 2 tsp

garam masala - 1 tsp

lemon juice - 2 tsp

chaat masala pdr to sprinkle on top

METHOD

Anjali M said...

HI, quick question: when you say 'drumettes' do you mean 'drumsticks'? Or the smaller 'lollipops'? Here in India I get both, frozen - I've bought the drumsticks and am planning to make this tom..if you meant the smaller 'lollipops', then can I make it with drumsticks, with maybe more cooking time?
Thanks, Anjali

ranji said...

hi anjali...by drumettes i meant those lollipops...u can also use drumsticks,but they will need a slightly more cooking time and marination time .u can use whichever u prefer ...hope u enjoy baking those and eating them as well :)...
