Chettinad Chicken Fry - Restaurant Style
This is a chicken leg roast recipe which you can find commonly in Chettinad hotels and restaurants. I have a added Ajinomoto to this recipe as they do in resturants to get nice taste and flavor, if you prefer to omit you can and it still tastes good.

Turmeric powder – ¼ tsp
Fennel powder – 1 tsp
Garam masala powder – 1 tsp
Ajinomoto – ¼ tsp
Tandoori food color - pinch
Lime juice – ½ tsp
Salt to taste
