A classic butter chicken, but using the cheaper and underrated drumstick rather than spenny chicken breasts.


Mix all of the marinade ingredients together in a bowl and set aside for at least 3 hours. When ready, grill over charcoal or under a very high heat until cooked through.

Meanwhile, make the sauce: toast the dry spices until they smell aromatic, then add the oil and cook the ginger garlic paste. Add the onion and cook for 10 or so minutes, then add the ground spices and cook out for another 3 minutes. Add the tomatoes and cook over a low heat for another 10 or so mins, check the seasoning, then add the drumsticks, the cream, butter and fenugreek (methi).

Finish with a drizzle of cream and sprinkle of fenugreek.
