How To Make Tandoori Roasted Turkey Legs
Tandoori paste is classic Indian paste made with a mixture of spices, yogurt and herbs. You can either make it from scratch or use store bought paste.
Making this roasted legs dish is pretty straightforward. The key is to marinate the turkey legs with tandoori paste preferably overnight. This way, all the flavors get absorbed into the meat.
Along with turkey drumsticks, I also added in some sliced onions and bell peppers (capsicum). I also like to add a sprig of rosemary to level up the flavors. Arrange all the ingredients in a baking dish.
The secret to keeping the turkey legs moist? Pour in a little chicken broth (stock) into the baking dish. This will keep the turkey legs moist when roasting.
Once turkey is roasted and cooked through, prep the gravy. You can use the stock leftover in the baking dish along with all the beautiful pan juices to make lip-smacking gravy.
