Chicken drumsticks with spiced rice

Chicken menas simple but does not have to be boring. This recipe is resining me of summer. Spicy, and aromatic rice and very tender chicken drumsticks which make you feel comfortable. It's really worming up and you do not need any specific spices as we all have it in out cabinets. This is my proposition for today's stormy weather. 

Spiced rice

  • 1 1/2 cups jasmine rice
  • 2 1/4 cups water 
  • 3 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 onion 
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 small red pepper
  • 2 tsp turmeric
  • 2 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 smoked paprika
  • 1 tsp ground cumin
  • salt
  • Optionally lemon and mint.
  1. Soak rice for 15 min, then since until the water will be clear. Set aside. 
  2. In a pot warm up the olive oil. Add faintly diced onion, minced garlic and cubed red pepper. Sauté until all ingredients soft.
  3. Add turmeric, chilli powder, smoked paprika and cumin. Stir well and cook on a very low heat for 2 min.
  4. Stir in rice and combine with ingredients in pot. Cover with water and cook under the cover on a low heat for 15 min. (Sometimes depends on the brand so check few times - make sure the rice is fluffy but not overcooked.)
  5. Turn off the heat and mix well with fork. 
  6. Optionally garnish with fresh mint and lemon slices.
Chicken drumsticks:

  • 8 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 2 tbsp tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp oil
  • 1/2 tsp hot paprika
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  1. In a bowl mix honey, tomato paste, oil, hot paprika and salt.
  2. Transfer meat into the bowl with marinate. Toss well. Set aside.
  3. Preheat the oven 180°C.
  4. Place all drumsticks on a baking tray and roast for 45 min.
  5. Serve with slices of lemon.
I hope you are all doing well at home. There is so much more to share and so much more to come. I wish you all to be patient, to think positive and to plan what you will all do when you'll be back to life? Will you follow your previous path? Will you chose a new direction? Will you start fighting for your dreams? I wish to see it all.
