Spicy Drums

A purely experimental recipe that turned out spice-celiciously delicious!

My favorite piece of the chicken is the drumstick. I can never have enough of them. This recipe was created for a feast we had at our place where most of the dishes I had made were more like finger-food. And this turned out to be a great addition to my dinner entrees and my book of recipes!

Enjoy these Spicy Drums, as much as I did making them and watching people "mmm'ing and yummmmm'ing" after taking a bite!

Ingredients

Drums:
20 chicken drumsticks (drums) - washed and fat trimmed - put 2-3 cuts on each leg.

Spicy Mixture:

2 (heaping) tsp of ginger/garlic paste (adrak lessan)

4 tbsp of ketchup

3-5 small green chillies (hari mirchain) blended with a 1 tsp of water, 1/2 tsp of lemon juice and 1/2 tsp vinegar

1-2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes (kutt-tee howi laal mirchain) or to taste

3 tbsp of mayonnaise

2 tbsp of melted butter

2 tbsp olive oil

2 tbsp of minced garlic (or 4 garlic cloves finely chopped)

2 tbsp chilli garlic sauce

1 tsp black pepper

1-2 tsp salt or to taste

Preparation

Submerge drums in cold water and add two leveled tablespoons of salt and let them soak for about an hour to kill that weird chicken-y smell.
(Desi Method/Tareeka - Use ginger/garlic paste instead of salt)


Drain the drums and throw them into a plastic zip-loc bag or plastic tupperware with a secure lid. Pour in the spicy mixture, and shake what your mama gave ya - making sure the drums are well coated with the spicy mixture.

Set it aside (in the fridge) for at least 1 hour.

Lay the drums in a baking dish leaving a little bit of space between each leg - depending on the size of baking dish, you might need 2 dishes if they're smaller and cannot fit all of the 20 chicken drumsticks.

Bake at 400 degrees Fahrenheit until brown and tender (30-40 minutes) - rotate and flip the drums after about 15-20 minutes.

Broil on high if you want to soak up/evaporate the juices and brown the drums some more.

Make sure to check on the drums frequently and rotate them when broiling on high.
