  • pan
  • small mixing bowl


  • 3 chicken drumsticks
  • 2 green onions
  • 4 pods garlic
  • 3 tbsp soy sauce
  • 3 tbsp tomato ketchup
  • 3 tbsp oil
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp Pepper
  • 2 cups water


  • Prepare a sauce by combining equal parts of soy sauce and tomato ketchup in a small bowl and keep it aside.
  • To a hot pan, add oil and chopped garlic. Stir fry until golden brown.
  • Saute green onions till it becomes translucent.
  • Place chicken legs in the pan. Fry it for a minute and stir in salt and pepper. Fry it for 2-3 minutes.
  • Add water and cook with covering a lid.
  • Once the chicken cooked, pour the soy-tomato sauce and mix well.
  • Simmer for 3-5 mins on low heat.
  • Turn off the heat when the sauce gets slightly thickened.
  • Serve warm with bread naan, roti, and rice.



  1. Sauté garlic and green onions before adding chicken drums. It will enhance the taste of chicken drumsticks.

  2. You can vary the proportion of sauce ingredients according to your taste.

  3. Add a little amount of salt as soy sauce also contains salt. It's better to add more later rather than ruining the recipe.

  4. If you like thick consistency, add less quantity of water.

  5. Replacing the green onions with other onions will not bring its unique flavour. I highly recommend the use of green onions.
