Tandoori drumsticks

 Try kettle-braaied chicken, it has a delicious smokey flavour and the chicken remains juicy.


Makes: 6-8 portions
Preparation time: 20 minutes (plus marinating time)

• 10ml garam masala
• 2 large cloves of garlic, crushed
• 1 inch fresh ginger, grated
• salt and freshly ground black pepper


1 Use a sharp knife to make two shallow incisions in each drumstick so the marinade can be drawn in.

2 Mix all the marinade ingredients in a mixing bowl then pour over the drumsticks, cover and marinate for 1-2 hours or overnight.
