Chicken Drumstick Fry / Nadan kozhi Varuthadh- An easy side dish

This weekend was spent roaming around the malls, dining out, watchin a movie,”Rio”, the movie which my little one watched for the first time in a hall. She (and even we too) really enjoyed watching it because of the colorful animation. So after all this the next day was a lazy day, thinking of what to cook and all. As we dined out the previous day there was so much of curry left so thought of making some easy side dish and landed on this.This is an easy side dish with chapathis, rotis or any rice item. This is a very simple and tasty chicken dish and requires very less time to cook.

We can also make this with chicken pieces instead of drumsticks.

  1. Chicken Drumsticks- 5pieces
  2. Red chilli powder- 3tbsp
  3. Ginger Garlic paste- 2tbsp
  4. Turmeric powder- 2tsp
  5. Salt- as required
  6. Pepper powder- 1tbsp
  7. Lemon Juice- 2tbsp
  8. Oil- To shallow fry

  1. Clean and wash the chicken pieces.Drain it and keep aside. Make 2-3 slits.
  2. In a bowl mix red chilli powder, turmeric powder, ginger and garlic paste, pepper powder,lemon juice and salt  to a paste.
  3. Marinate the chicken pieces with the above made paste and keep it for about 1-2 hours in refrigerator.
  4. Now Pour oil in a pan and shallow fry the chicken drumsticks till done.
  5. Serve this along with hot rice or chapathis.
I am sending this to Kerala Kitchen an series hosted by Ria.
