For 8 chicken legs you need :

1tsp gram masala powder

Adding the small piece tomato helps getting a smooth paste as it releases its juice.
> Start by marinating the chicken legs in a little salt and turmeric for 1 hour.
> After an hour steam the chicken for 10 min, the steaming is what makes the chicken tender and juicy after frying, also make sure to place them evenly and not pile them on top of each other.
> Cool the chicken completely and then coat the chicken with the spice paste, allow to sit in the spice marination for 2 hours in the fridge.
Then allow to rest for 5/10 min after removing it from the fridge and then fry the chicken on a medium heat till light brown and crispy.
Do not eat them right away,rest them for 5 min.
Also fry some extra curry leaf to garnish the chicken while serving.Now your done !
