One of the easiest Indian chicken recipes. Simple, straightforward and mouth watering goes with a drink, with any kind of rice or Indian bread.

  • 1 box of chicken legs and thighs
  • 3 cloves. 3 cardamom, 2 cm long cinnamon coarsely crushed together
  • 2 tsp fennel powder
  • 1/4 tsp of turmeric powder (optional)
  • 2 tbs corriander seeds coarsely crushed (could use 2tsp of corriander powder, but wont get as much aroma as crushed)
  • 3 tsp dried red chillie coarsely crushed (could use 1 tsp of chillie powder)
  • 1/4 tsp freshly ground or powdered pepper
  • 1 tsp salt


    1. Remove the skin from the chicken if using thighs or leg which tastes better for this preparation. Trim the fat. Wash and drain.
    2. Heat a pan and add crushed cloves, cardamom and cinnamon and dry roast for a minute on medium heat. Add coarsely crushed corriander seeds and chillie and a pinch of turmeric powder stir well and roast for a minute. (if using powdered version make sure it doesnt burn) Add a tsp of fennel powder and roast for another minute.
    3. Add pepper powder and the drained chicken pieces and stir well so that it gets coated with the spices. Stir for 5 minutes and then close and cook till meat is well done on medium heat.
    4. Open pan and cook on low fire in the fat that is now found in the pan until the moisture evapourates stirring the pieces often.
    5. Serve hot with plain rice.
