Today I am going to post my 150th recipe, which is obviously a favourite roasted chicken dish and extremely loved by all generations. Here I didn't use any food colour, as I don't like to use it. But ultimately this taste is lipsmacking good. There are actually 4 steps: prepare marination, marinate the chicken drumsticks, oven baked and final touch given on the pan or griddle. This is not actually tandoori chicken, not used tandoor even. But kasoori methi and adjusted the amouth of spices, it comes out the taste exactly I was looking for. So enjoy this roasted chicken and my 150th post!!!

6-7 Chicken Drumsticks
2 Carrots, cut in round or oval shapes
1 Large onion, cut in thick slices
1/2 Cup Thick Yogurt (plain)
1 tsp Ginger paste
1 tsp Garlic paste
1/2 tsp Pepper powder
1/2 tsp Red Chilli powder
1/2 tsp Green Chilli paste
1/2 tsp Dry Fenugreek Leaves (kasoori methi)
1/3 tsp Garam masala
1/3 tsp Roasted Cumin powder
1/2 tsp Coriander powder
1/3 tsp Turmeric powder
1/2 tsp Chaat masala
2 tbsps Lemon juice
2-3 tbsps Olive oil
1 tbsp Butter
Salt to taste

Wash the chicken pieces and make it pat dry. Now make a deep cut on the thicker flesh of chicken drumsticks upto the bone part with the tip of your knife. Make sure the marination will enter inside the chicken drumsticks.

Now in a small bowl combine red chilli powder, 1 tbsp lemon juice and salt. Rub this mixture on the chicken drumsticks and make sure it must be inside the cutting parts also. Keep this marinated chicken aside for 30 minutes.

Take a large bowl. Combine yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, green chilli paste, pepper powder, dry fenugreek leaves, garam masala, cumin powder, coriander powder, turmeric powder, 1 tbsp lemon juice and salt. Mix nicely and add chicken pieces in it. Fold well, so that chicken coats nicely with the spices. Add olive oil on top of the chicken pieces and mix it once again. Now keep the marianated chicken in refrigerator for overnight or atleast 4 hours.

Preheat oven to 450 F. Take one greased baking tray. place carrot pieces on it. Keep little room between the two pieces.

Now place marinated chicken drumsticks on the top of these carrot pieces.

Place the baking tray to oven after 15 minutes take it out from the oven and just turn the chicken pieces. Again bake for another 15 minutes more. Switch off the oven and keep it inside for another 5 minutes.

Now heat butter on a large frying pan. Combine onions with the remaining juice of the chicken marination.

Add onions and the chicken pieces in frying pan. chicken pieces on that. After 2 minutes, turn the chicken pieces. Fry for another 2 minutes.

Garnish roasted chicken drumstics on a plate with onions and carrots. Serve hot as a starter or side dish with dinner.
