Garam Masala Drumsticks with Aloo Gobi

Ok...this isn't the first time that I have made this recipe, but it is worth sharing!  Homemade "Shake N Bake" with an Indian/coconut twist anyone?

I really like this recipe, and I tend to double it or triple it every time I make it.  This is a GREAT recipe to make for company as well or to have around for leftovers and snacks.  I wonder what it would be like with chicken thighs or breasts?  I love the crispiness of the coating, but I am slightly curious what panko crumbs would be like instead of bread crumbs...maybe too messy for the first coat?  I love how this mimics a healthier fried chicken recipe...baked in the oven but still crispy on the outside and tender on the inside.  I wonder if the chicken drums would be even more tender soaked overnight in buttermilk - similar to many baked chicken recipes I have seen.  I love the flavours of the spices and the coconut, so I would not mess around with that at all - perfection!  Just a note....I tend to only make the drumsticks as I have another recipe that I like for Aloo Gobi.  If you are looking for a one pan dinner, though, I do recommend this entire recipe!

I would love to make this with my grade 9 classes, but the 40 minute bake time is a bit too much for our limited time.  Perhaps, I can recommend it to my high school colleagues or even save this one for the many requests I have had to teach evening cooking classes to either teenagers or adults....

Another great recipe from Canadian Living magazine!  I wonder if I will ever get the chance to collaborate with their test fun!
