Tandoori chicken drumstick is a hassle free recipe which involves baking of chicken in the oven and is the most tastier way to prepare chicken drumstick according to me as its flavors are distinct from the regular cooking. I usually like to prepare it as side accompany while making biryani as it makes the meal complete. In this method even coloring can be achieved as it is baked and for this recipe I have not used any food color. So lets get to the baking!
- Chicken drumstick – 4
- Ginger garlic paste – 1 tsp
- Chili powder – 1 ½ tsp
- Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
- Coriander powder – 1 tsp
- Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
- Curd – 4 tbsp
- Salt as needed
