  • 4 chopped red onions

    4-5 Tbsp malt vinegar

    1 slit green chilli

    4 chicken legs

    For the Chicken Marinade:

    7-8 cloves

    1/2 tsp black peppercorns

    1/2 stick cinnamon

    1 tsp cumin seeds

    1 heaped tsp coriander seeds

    1 inch ginger

    7-8 cloves of garlic

    4 slit green chillies

    Few mint leaves

    1 tsp turmeric powder

    1/2 tsp jaggery

    1/2 lime (juice)

    2 Tbsp ghee


Put the chopped onions and 1 green chilli in a bowl with the malt vinegar and set aside.

Make insertions/slits on the chicken legs.

Dry roast the spices in a pan.

Put the spices in a mortar and pestle and grind into a nice powder.

Dry roast the aromatics- ginger, garlic and green chillies.

Mix this in with the powder and grind into a nice paste.

Add some mint leaves, jaggery and juice of 1/2 a lime to this spice paste.

Pour a few teaspoons of ghee onto the chicken and rub in the marinade. Put into the fridge for
2 hours or so. Then bring the chicken to room temperature and season well.

Heat a tava with some oil and sear the chicken on a high flame till nicely colored, turn down
the heat and fry gently, deglazing with a little water to prevent the masala from burning, until
it's a nice golden brown colour.

Baste with ghee/butter and lime juice and cook till the chicken is tender and cooked perfectly.
Scatter over some fresh coriander and serve with the sirca pyaaz, green chillies and lime wedges.
