Hussain has been back on YouTube teaching you more of our authentic Pakistani recipes. That includes one of our favourite childhood meals: a chicken drumstick curry. Chicken drumstick curry originates from the Indian subcontinent, but is popular throughout South East Asia and also in the UK. Whilst you may find some variations, we are following a traditional recipe which includes onions, tomatoes, ginger garlic paste, and various spices, so that the chicken drumsticks soak up all that flavour and make for a truly mouthwatering meal. You’ll find all the ingredients you’ll need and the recipe below!


  • 12 tablespoons of oil

  • 1kg of chicken drumsticks

  • 2 chopped onions

  • 3 chopped tomatoes

  • 3 diced green chillies

  • 3 tablespoons of ginger garlic paste

  • A few pinches of Garam Masala

  • 1 tablespoon of coriander powder

  • 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder

  • 2 tablespoons of chilli powder



1) Add 12 tablespoons of oil to a hot pan and allow it to heat.

2) Add 2 chopped onions and cook at a medium heat until the onions are browned.

3) Once the onions have started to brown, add 1 tablespoon of salt.

4) Add 3 tablespoons of ginger garlic paste and stir.

5) Add 3 chopped tomatoes, a pinch of Garam Masala and 3 diced chillies. Stir them all together well.

6) Add 1kg of drumsticks and make sure you mix in well, so that they can soak up all the different flavours.

7) Once your drumsticks are mixed in, put the lid on and let it simmer on low heat for around 20 minutes. Stir occasionally so the chicken and onions don’t burn.

8) Remove the lid and add 1 tablespoon of coriander powder, 1 tablespoon of turmeric powder, 2 tablespoons of chilli powder and a little bit of Garam Masala, stirring as you go

9) Add 3-4 cups of water, put the lid on, and let it simmer on high heat for 15 minutes.

10) Check on the curry and stir before leaving it to simmer for another 10 minutes.

11) You should have a nice, thick paste, and then you can add some coriander garnish and serve up!
