About This Recipe

Here, I used one of the different methods where the chicken is not deep fried or baked, but rather slightly roasted in some oil.

The roasted chicken leg piece can be served on its own, as a starter recipe, or as a side dish to any of the main course recipes. Check out the blog for more chicken starters like tandoori chicken, chicken 65, pair chicken leg boneless chicken thighs, and chicken seekh kabab.

To get the flavors infused into the chicken, marinate the legs for at least an hour with aromatic spices.

If you only have half an hour to cook, reduce the marination time to 30 minutes and marinate in the refrigerator so that all of the masalas are perfectly absorbed by the chicken pieces…

The flavors of the chicken pieces are absolutely restaurant-quality, and I usually don’t add too many flavors and keep every dish mildly spicy and flavorful.
