Garam Masala Drumsticks With Aloo Gobi

Garam Masala Drumsticks With Aloo Gobi

This Indian-inspired one-pan dinner is an easy weeknight meal. Aloo gobi means potato cauliflower, which is often seasoned with garlic, onion, ginger, curry and turmeric, which gives it its yellow colour. Using a resealable bag to bread the chicken makes for easy clean up but you can also just use a bowl.


1/2 cup (125 mL) dried bread crumbs
4 tsp (18 mL) garam masala
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground coriander
1/4 tsp (1 mL) garlic powder
1/4 tsp (1 mL) onion powder
1 pinch cayenne pepper
1 pinch salt
4 skinless chicken drumsticks
1 cup (250 mL) medium shredded unsweetened coconut
1 egg, beaten

Aloo Gobi:
1-1/4 tsp (6 mL) ground cumin
3/4 tsp (4 mL) ground coriander
3/4 tsp (4 mL) curry powder
3/4 tsp (4 mL) turmeric
1/2 tsp (2 mL) garlic powder
1/4 tsp (1 mL) salt
1 pinch cayenne pepper
2 tbsp (30 mL) vegetable oil
2 cups (500 mL) cauliflower florets
12 oz (340 g) mini yellow-fleshed potatoes, scrubbed and halved

Curry Yogurt Sauce:
1/2 cup (125 mL) Balkan-style plain yogurt
2 tsp (10 mL) lemon juice
1/2 tsp (2 mL) liquid honey


In resealable plastic bag, combine bread crumbs, garam masala, coriander, garlic powder, onion powder and cayenne pepper.

Sprinkle salt over chicken; add to bread crumb mixture and shake to coat. Remove to plate.

Add coconut to bread crumb mixture. Dip chicken in egg, letting excess drip off; return to bread crumb mixture and shake to coat.

Aloo Gobi: In small bowl, stir together cumin, coriander, curry powder, turmeric, garlic powder, salt and cayenne pepper; remove 1 tsp and set aside. Stir oil into remaining spice mixture.

Place cauliflower and potatoes in separate bowls. Divide oil mixture between bowls; toss to coat.

Arrange chicken and potatoes on lightly greased foil-lined baking sheet; bake in 400 degrees F (200 degrees C) oven for 20 minutes. Turn chicken and stir potatoes.

Add cauliflower to baking sheet; bake until juices run clear when chicken is pierced and cauliflower is beginning to brown, about 20 minutes.

Curry Yogurt Sauce: In bowl, stir together yogurt, lemon juice, honey and reserved spice mixture. Serve with chicken and vegetables.
