 Ingredients List

  • 1/2 ts Ginger; ground
  • 1/2 ts Cardamom; ground
  • 1 ts Coriander; ground
  • 1/2 tb Turmeric; ground
  • 1/2 tb Mustard; ground
  • 1/2 ts Fenugreek seeds; crushed
  • 1/2 ts Nutmeg; ground
  • 1/2 ts Cinnamon; ground
  • 1/2 ts Allspice; ground
  • 2 tb Cayenne pepper
  • 1 Dried cayenne chile pepper;
  • -seeded, minced
  • 1/4 c Paprika
  • 1 1/2 ts Salt
  • 1 1/2 ts Black pepper; ground
  • 1/4 c Dry red wine
  • 2 tb Peanut oil
  • 2 tb Orange juice
  • 12 Chicken drumsticks


For the spice paste, mix first 12 ingredients plus 1 1/2 teaspoons salt and
1 1/2 teaspoons pepper in a small skillet. Cook over low heat, stirring
constantly to form a smooth paste, for about 2 minutes. Remove from heat
and stir in oil, wine and orange juice.

Rub each drumstick evenly with this spice paste, then transfer them to a
large nonreactive bowl; cover and refrigerate 2 hours. (Can be refrigerated
overnight.) Heat the broiler. Transfer drumsticks to a broiling pan. Broil
drumsticks, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 20 to 25
minutes. Serve immediately. Makes 4 servings.

Note: Chicken drumsticks are marinated in a peppery spice paste or
'berbere,' which is a staple of Ethiopian cooking. Some of the more exotic
spices have been omitted here, but this recipe still uses the traditional
Ethiopian method of sauteeing the spices to bring out their flavor.
