Recipe by Mrs. Nidhi Sehgal of

I would expect some comments from people who try out this recipe.

Ingredients non vegetarian 4 servings

  • 10 nos. Chicken, skinless drumsticks
  • 8 cloves Garlic
  • 2 tbsps. Lime juice
  • 3 tsps. Red Chili Powder
  • 2 tsps. Coriander powder
  • 4 tsps. Spice mix for Tandoori
  • 4 tsps. All spice powder
  • 2 tbsps. Butter
  • Cilantro for garnishing
  • Salt to taste


  1. Wash chicken and trim all fat. Make small incisions in the chicken pieces.
  2. Now take all the spices (except butter and coriander leaves) and mix them with chicken. Keep it aside for 2 to 3 hours for marination.
  3. Heat some butter in a non stick pan and fry 2 to 3 chicken pieces at a time. Keep stirring occasionaly till the chicken is tender.
  4. After all the chicken is done, take coriander leaves and fry them lightly in very little butter. Garnish the chicken pieces with this sauce and serve as a side dish or appetizer.



Very Good! I tried this recipe and it came out good. I would like to recommend some minor changes to this recipe. Instead of 3 tsps. add 1 1/2 tsp. Kashmiri Red chilli powder, instead of 4 tsps. add 2 tsps. Spice Mix for Tandoori and instead of 4 tsps. add 1/2 tsp. All spice powder. I did not cooked 2-3 chicken at a time, but instead cooked all of them at the same time in a big pan and add some water when the chicken seemed to be drying out. I added the fresh coriander without frying as garnish. Thank you!

Its a really good recipe. I baked it too and it was better than frying. Less calories also the marination stays better while baking rather than frying



all spice powder means garam masala?


This is same as Tandoori chicken if marinated in curd and roasted in Oven. Tasty one.

Well thanks for the recipe. It made my evening, my boy friend was very impressed. Later we have tried the BBQ version of it, that came even better.

this receipe is a little dry. if curd is added to it the spices will cook well and also it will go deep inside the meat

what is spice mix for tandoori. I have not yet tried the recipe, in fact i have just logged on to this site for the first time. but the recipe looks delicious, please reply as soon as possible




if you will add some curd in it it will taste much better & in place of frying make it in oven it will be less faty.
