Total time
Serves: 4 servings
  • 1 lb chicken drumsticks ( I had around 5 )
Marinade for chicken :
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp red chili powder
  • ½ tsp turmeric
  • 1 tbsp coriander powder
  • 1 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tbsp ginger-garlic paste
  • 1 cup thick yogurt
  • 1 tbsp garam masala
For Gravy:
  • 1 Tbsp oil
  • 4-5 slit green chilies
  • 1 cup finely chopped onion
  • 2.5 cups tomato puree
Chicken Curry:
  1. In a bowl mix all the ingredients for marinating chicken. In a ziplock bag, add chicken drumsticks along with ingredients for marinating chicken.
  2. Let it sit in fridge for 6 hrs to overnight.
  3. In a deep pot add oil. Once hot add chilies and onions and cook until onions are softened. Add tomato puree and cook for 7-10 minutes until raw smell is gone. Add the marinated chicken along with all the marinade and cook on medium-low for 30 minutes. Once chicken drumsticks are cooked, take them out of the gravy and keep aside. Thicken the gravy a little bit more and taste and adjust spices as per taste.
  4. Serve along with chapatis, naan or rice!
