Indian Chicken Drumsticks

READY IN: 55mins
Recipe by julie g.

My old neighbor from India made these drumsticks and started calling them after my husband since he loved them so much. Slightly hot - cumin, corriander, tumeric.... dry rub - wonderful!

Nice combination of spices and chicken smelled good while cooking. I made the chicken without the skin and it was still moist and had a nice flavor with a hint of heat from the chili powder. Served with kale and brown rice for a nice and healthy dinner. Will make again. Thanks for the recipe.
