Chicken Leg Fry is a very easy and quick recipe using fewer ingredients. This recipe calls for hardly 5 ingredients that are easily available in the kitchen. This dish goes well with biryani, pulao, sambar rice or even as an appetizer. I have used coconut oil which adds extra flavour to the dish but you can use any oil of your choice. Adding more curry leaves gives excellent flavour so try to add more curry leaves especially fresh ones. You can choose any type of chicken. I have used drumsticks because it is very easy for the kids to hold and eat.
