Half teaspoon paprika
Half teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
Dash of freshly ground black pepper
Quarter cup (65 ml) butter
4 chicken leg quarters
2 red onions, quartered
4 vine tomatoes
To Serve:


Combine the garlic, paprika, salt, cumin, and black pepper. Add butter and mix well. Use a mortar and pestle to make a paste consistency, or mash with a fork.

While the chicken is cooking prepare the rice and mixed vegetables.

Serve the meal with prepared gravy.
