Ingredients:

  • Chicken Legs – 6 pieces
  • Butter – 2-3 tbp
  • Kashmiri chilli powder – 2 tsp
  • Ginger garlic paste – 3 tsp
  • Turmeric powder – ½ tsp
  • Lemon Juice – 2-3 Tbsp
  • Salt

 

To Dry Roast & Powder :

  • Fennel seeds – 2 tsp
  • Peppercorns – ½ tsp (optional)
  • Cinnamon stick – 3-4 pieces
  • Cardamom pods – 4-5
  • Cloves – 3-4

 

(Note: Do not substitute Kashmiri Chilli with Red chilli powder. Kashmiri chilli is very less spicy and helps to make the masala thick. Vary the amount of chilli powder and pepper as per your spice level. When you make this the spices and salt should be in little higher side. Once its cooked the intensity reduces and tastes perfect)
