Baked Chicken Drumsticks

Previously I had posted a recipe for spicy baked chicken drumsticks, in which I had used yogurt to marinate the chicken. This time I wanted to avoid using yogurt. So, in this recipe I used lemon juice, mustard oil and curry powder. The outcome was super delicious.
Chicken Drumsticks - 6
Mustard Oil - 3 tbsp
Lime Juice - 11/2 tbsp
Chilli Powder - 1/2 tsp 
Curry powder - 3/4 tsp
Pepper Powder - 1/4 tsp
Salt - as per taste

Method of Preparation:
1. Wash the drumsticks, peel off the excess skin if you wish and make deep slits on them.
2. Add the drumsticks to a mixing bowl along with the rest of ingredients and mix well using your hand otherwise add the drumsticks and all ingredients to a ziploc bag and shake well till they get coated evenly with the marinade.
3. Marinate them in the refrigerator for a minimum of 6 hours, best if marinated overnight.
4. Preheat the oven to 400 F, line a baking tray with foil and spray oil on it. Place the drumsticks on the tray and pour the leftover marinade on them.
5. Reduce the oven temperature to 375F and bake the drumsticks for 40 minutes.
6. Turnover the drumsticks and bake for another 30 minutes or till the drumsticks get cooked.
7. Increase the temperature to 425F and bake them until they turn crisp, about 15 to 20 minutes.
8. Enjoy the baked chicken drumsticks warm.
