Tangdi Kabab

Kabab refers to a variety of meat dishes consisting of grilled or broiled meats on stick or skewer. I tried this so many times and it is a hit among friends and family. This time also I thought of making this kabab as we had some guests for lunch and as I was preparing the menu my Husband told me to include this as they were huge fans of chicken.
You want to know how I learned this method? This is from a book called Sanjeev kapoor’s Khana khazana. I got this from one of my friend who is a pure vegetarian and she got this set of khana khazana books as a wedding gift.

  1. Chicken drumsticks- 4nos
  2. Lemon Juice- ½ tbsp
  3. Ginger and garlic paste- 1tbsp
  4. Green chillies (chopped)-2nos
  5. Curd- ½ cup
  6. Gram flour / Besan- 1tbsp
  7. Turmeric powder- 1tbsp
  8. Garam Masala powder- 1tsp
  9. Red chilli powder (kashmiri)- 1tsp
  10. Salt- as required

  1. Clean and drain the chicken drumsticks with kitchen towel. Make 3-4 long deep incisions and apply lemon juice and keep aside.
  2. Hang curd in a muslin cloth for about 30 minutes to drain off excess water.
  3. Roast the gram flour in a low heat and mix this along with hung curd, green chillies, ginger and garlic paste, turmeric powder, garam masala powder, red chilli powder and salt.
  4. Marinate chicken drumsticks with the above mixture and refrigerate for almost 2 hours.
  5. Preheat the oven to 200 degrees C and this for 5 minutes in an oven proof bowl. Now reduce the oven temparature to 180 degrees C and cook for 30- 40 minutes or till it is completly cooked. In between turn the drumsticks couple of times for even cooking.
  6. Serve hot.
