    Ingredients

    • 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

    Method

    • With a sharp knife, make a few cuts in the flesh of each drumstick.

    • Place the remaining ingredients in a food processor and blend until fairly smooth. Transfer to a wide ceramic bowl and season to taste.

    • Add the drumsticks to the marinade, rubbing the mixture well into the meat.

    • If you have time, cover and chill for 1-2 hours or overnight if time permits.

    • 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.
