Serves : 2
  • 30 grams Almonds

  • 1 tsp Ginger Garlic Paste

  • 1 tbsp Ghee

  • 1/2 Tsp Garam Masala Powder

  • 1/2 Tsp White Pepper Powder

  • 1 tsp Salt to Taste

  • Juice of 1/2 a Lime

  • 3 skinless Chicken legs


  • Soak the almonds in about 1 cup hot water for 5 minutes and then blend to a fine paste.
  • Score the chicken legs making gashes in the thigh and drumstick.
  • Mix the salt, pepper, garam masala, almond paste, ginger garlic paste and lime juice and marinate the chicken. Leave to marinate for at least 1 hour. The longer the better.
  • Heat the ghee in a non stock pan (or you can use cast iron too) and fry the chicken for about 4-5 minutes on each side and then cover and cook for another 10 minutes.
  • Once fully cooked just use a wire grill over the stove top and char the chicken from the outside.
  • You can alternatively cook the chicken in the oven at the highest temperature and keep basting every 3-4 minutes with melted ghee.
