  • 8 large, skinless chicken drumsticks
  • 150g fat free natural yogurt
  • 1 tbsp mild curry powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 5 tbsp finely chopped coriander
  • 5 tbsp finely chopped mint
  • Finely grated zest and juice of 1 lime
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper

Alternatively, roast the drumsticks in a preheated oven at 180C/ 350C/Gas Mark 4 for 30 minutes or until the chicken is cooked through. Or cook under a preheated hot grill for 15-20 minutes.


  1. With a sharp knife, make a few cuts in the flesh of each drumstick.
  2. Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until fairly smooth. Transfer to a wide ceramic bowl and season to taste.
  3. Add the drumsticks to the marinade, rubbing the mixture well into the meat.
  4. If you have time, cover and chill for 1-2 hours or overnight if time permits.
  5. Remove the drumsticks from the marinade, shaking off the excess. Cook them on the barbecue for 20-25 minutes, turning occasionally, until cooked through. Serve warm or cold.
