STUFFED CHICKEN DRUMSTICKS


This is a very light and mild snack. I have stuffed the chicken drumsticks with crumbled paneer and mint leaves with just a basic tempering and grilled them.

Ingredients:
Chicken drumsticks ......... 5-6
Paneer (cottage cheese).....1/2 cup
Mint leaves ......................... 1/4 cup
Coriander leaves ............... 1/2 cup
Green chillies .................... 2-3
Lime ................................. 1
Coconut milk powder ..... 2 tbsps.
Garlic paste....................... 2 tbsps.
Salt .................................. to taste

Method:
1. Wash the chicken and pat it dry. With a sharp knife make a slit in the middle.

2. Marinate it with salt, and lime juice (use half a lime)

3. Crush the paneer. Grind the green chillies, mint and coriander leaves coarsely preferably in a mortar and pestle.

4. Add the crushed paneer and a little salt to it and mix well.

5. Stuff this mixture into the chicken legs on either side of the bone and secure the edges with tooth picks.

6. Dilute the coconut milk powder with quarter cup waterto make a thick cream, add a little lime juice, garlic paste and salt.( You may also use fresh cream instead )

7. Pour this over the chicken legs and leave it in the refrigerator for at least 4-5 hrs.

8. Preheat the oven and grill the chicken for 35-40 minutes.
9. To give a brownish roasted colour, brush the chicken with a little oil and saute on a non stick griddle.
10. Remove the toothpicks, wrap a piece of foil paper on the bones and serve hot.
