Step 1: You will need...

  • 6 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp ginger, grated
  • 120 ml plain yoghurt
  • 2 tsp ground coriander
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • 1 cayenne pepper
  • ½ tsp garam masala
  • 1 tbsp curry powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • juice of 1/2 a lemon
  • salt
  • a few sprigs of coriander
  • 1 sharp knife
  • 1 bowl
  • 1 spoon
  • 1 tongs
  • 1 tray
  • 1 chopping board
  • 1 barbecue, either charcoal or gas
  • 1 bottle of water for dousing flames

Step 2: Prepare the drumsticks

Use the knife to cut around the bottom of the drumsticks to the bone. Scrape the flesh from the bone towards the end of the drumsticks and place them onto the tray.

Step 3: Make the marinade

Into the bowl add the garlic, ginger, yoghurt, coriander, cumin, cayenne pepper, garam masala, curry powder, turmeric and lemon juice. Season well with salt and mix all the ingredients together.

Step 4: Marinate the chicken

Transfer the drumsticks into the bowl of marinade and make sure that they are all covered. Marinate for a minimum of 1 hour (for best results, marinate overnight).

Step 5: Prepare the barbecue

If you plan to use a charcoal barbecue, light it 30-45 minutes before you cook and wait until the charcoal has turned white and there are no more flames. If you are using an electric barbecue, turn to high and leave for 20 minutes to heat up.

Step 6: Barbecue the drumsticks

Cook the drumsticks on the barbecue for 10-12 minutes. Using the tongs, turn the drumsticks over every 2 minutes to avoid burning them. Remove from the barbecue.

Step 7: Serve and garnish

Transfer the drumsticks onto a large serving dish and garnish with a few sprigs of coriander. A perfect Indian twist to a classic barbecue favourite!
