Recheado chicken drumsticks

chicken drumsticks

Howdy guys !

I’m back after another mini vacation from Goa! It was more of a hectic vacation, meeting relatives and shopping for all the spices and other foodstuffΒ to carry back home.

Since I’m back from Goa, it’s only apt I share something from the region – Rechaedo chicken drumsticks. Although Recheado is mostly used as a marinade for fish and other sea food in Goa, I learnt about using it for poultry from my mum in law. And let me tell you, it complements chicken very well too, especially if the marinade is left overnight. I’ve already shared the recipe of Recheado masala earlier, in case you missed it, you can find it hereπŸ™‚

Ingredients ;

4 chicken drumsticks

2-3 tablespoons Recheado masala paste

salt to taste


  1. Wash and pat dry the chicken drumsticks well. Apply salt and rub over all the drumsticks , now add the Recheado masala paste , coat it well all over the chicken . Cover and let it marinate for a couple of hours or overnight for best results.
  2. Grill the chicken drumsticks or fry them on a heavy bottom skillet until cooked through. Serve with salad and some lemon wedges. Enjoy!
