Updated: May 26, 2020
Our very first recipe to inspire your Big Curry Night In comes from Grandma Nomi in Zanzibar, Tanzania and is a delicious Chicken Kalio.
Traditionally Chicken Kalio's are enjoyed by the Bohra community as part of a thaal. This is when families come together to enjoy a meal around a circular table laden with dishes.
The recipe is super easy to make and goes really well with rice and roti, depending on your preference.
Here's what you'll need:
18 Chicken Legs 3 Cups Yogurt
2 tbsp. mixed paste of green chillies, garlic & ginger) 2 1/2 Cups Tomato Puree
6-8 Onions 6 Green Chillies
2 tspn Haldi (Tumeric) 3 Sticks Cinnamon Few Cloves and Whole Black Pepper 1 tblsp White Zeera (cumin)

Heat a few spoons of oil or ghee and add to the chicken.
Cook on a slow fire or a medium oven for 1 ½ to 2 hours.
