Chicken Drumstick curry

What is it with the chicken drumsticks that everybody loves it so much?I myself was a great fan of this during my childhood and whenever my mom makes her preparation in kitchen for a chicken curry , i claim those  two legs to be mine :). Back in those days in  India , you dint have the option of buying only the pieces you want like we do now , instead you buy a full chicken  from your local butcher and then you cut them into pieces of desired sizes. So your chicken will have only two leg pieces, which makes the stage for all sound and fury among the siblings. Last day i was talking to my little cousins (7 and 5) they were fighting over the same and it reminded me of "chicken leg wars" with my own brother which made me to "Cook up" this curry. I had some left over dough from the previous days Idiyappam and made some steamed rice dumplings to go with this curry!!! The combo was finger licking good!!!!


Ingredients:-
Chicken drumsticks - 4
Onion chopped - 2
Tomato chopped - 1
Garlic - 3 cloves
Green chilies - 1
Cardamom - 3
Star anise - 2
Crushed peppercorns - 1/2 tsp
Cumin  seeds- 1 tsp
Chili powder - 1.5 tsp
Coriander powder - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Mint Leaves chopped - 1/4 cup
Salt to taste

Clean and make a few slits on the chicken drumsticks, and pat dry.
Crush garlic and green chilies in a mortar and pestle or coffee grinder.
Crush cardamom and star anise and set aside.
Heat oil in a pan and add cumin seeds, and Chopped  onion, saute till they turn brown for 8-10 minutes.
Add crushed ginger , green chiles and chopped tomato and continue frying for another 3 minutes.
Add Chili , coriander and turmeric powders and fry for a minute.
Pour 1.5 cup water, salt and pepper and chicken pieces.
Cook it covered on a medium flame  for 20-25 minutes or till the pieces are tender.(add more water if you want)
Remove the lid, add lime juice ,chopped mint leaves , crushed cardamom and star anise and let it stand on a low flame for 3-4 minutes
and remove
Serve warm!!!
