Fried Chicken Drumsticks

Joya Roy | October 9, 2021
Fried Chicken Drumsticks

Chicken legs were named drumsticks way back in the 16th century because they resembled percussion drumsticks and the name has stayed on ever since.

Being an excellent source of protein, essential amino acids, several vitamins and minerals, drumsticks are the most sought-after part of a chicken.

Most have their favourite recipe for making drumsticks, but this recipe scores over others in that it can be prepared weeks in advance and yet taste so delicious. 


Chicken drumsticks – 500 gms

Worcestershire sauce – 1 tbsp

Mustard powder – ½ tsp

Ginger paste – 1 tbsp

Garlic paste – 1 tbsp

Onions – 2 pcs; ground to a fine paste

Egg – 1 pc; beaten

Bread crumbs – 150 gms

Salt to taste

Pepper to taste 


  1. Clean the drumsticks and pat dry.
  2. Prick with a fork all over.
  3. Combine the worcestershire sauce, mustard powder, ginger, garlic and onion paste, salt and pepper to prepare the marinade.
  4. Dip the drumsticks in the marinade and roll nicely. Keep aside for 3-4 hours.
  5. Put the drumsticks in a non-stick pan and cook till all the juices dry.
  6. Remove from the fire and let cool.
  7. Dip each drumstick in the beaten egg and then roll in the bread crumbs. Allow to dry.
  8. Deep fry and serve with a cold salad.
  9. You may also deep freeze the drumsticks and when needed, defrost and deep fry.

These drumsticks can be prepared in advance and served as and when required.

Moreover, these are a much better and healthier option than processed meats one buys at the supermarket. Easy to prepare and delicious to taste, the drumsticks remain fresh and juicy even if kept frozen.

During her initial days in the kitchen, cooking was more of trial and error, born out of a desperate need to lay something presentable on the table. Soon, she learnt that cooking was as much an art, as a science.


Joya is extremely fond of baking and considers it therapeutic. Baking brings immense pleasure, particularly when she shares her cakes, flans, biscuits and desserts with family and friends. The smile on their faces is both calming and rewarding. Joya says it is like creating magic in your kitchen. You start with some basic ingredients like flour, butter, sugar and eggs which transform into so many different delightfully sinful dishes. Baking is her go to and the secret ingredient is always love!
