Roasted Tangy Chicken
2 Chicken legs, slit so that the chicken marinates well,
2 tbsp ginger-garlic-coriander paste,
1 tsp turmeric powder,
1-2 tsp red chilli powder,
1 tsp garam masala or chicken masala,
1/2 cup tomato ketchup,
Oil for shallow frying.
In a bowl mix ginger-garlic and coriander paste, red chilli powder, turmeric powder, tomato ketchup, salt and then put chicken legs into this, using hands marinate the chicken well by inserting the marinade into the slits of the chicken. You can marinate the chicken for at least 2 hours for better results, keep this overnight in the refrigerator for best results, else use it immediately if you do not have marination time, the recipe is just as good.
Heat oil for shallow frying in the pan, using a spoon spread well and then place the chicken legs into the pan along with its marinade. Cover and cook for 5 minutes. Uncover and turn the chicken pieces, again cover and cook for 10 minutes. Keep flipping and cook till chicken is tender. Sprinkle some chat masala and serve hot.
If you want to prepare this recipe for a party or friends/guests coming over the next day, marinate the chicken the previous night and relax. Next day you just have to fry the chicken. And the overnight marination gives a delicious taste to your dish.
