    1. Cook the rice in a rice cooker with the chicken stock and turmeric powder. (Cook without turmeric powder if you prefer white rice.)
    2. Heat the butter in a pot. Add the garlic, onion, ginger, curry powder, cloves and cinnamon. Fry until fragrant. Add the salt and chicken drumsticks. Stir well and cover the pot. Allow the chicken to cook over low heat for 30 minutes.
    3. Serve the rice with the chicken leg on top and, if available, cucumber achar, chutney or a salad on the side. Garnish with fresh coriander if desired.

    Tip:

    Feel free to use lamb or beef instead of chicken.
