For Roasting:


  • Leave the frog legs as whole. Wash and drain well.
  • Marinate the cleaned frog legs with a mixture of salt, turmeric, pepper powder and lemon juice.
  • Leave it for 15 to 20 minutes in refrigerator.
  • Fry the frog legs in oil until done. Be careful not to rip the meat while frying as frog meat is very delicate. You can also use a grill to avoid oil. Keep the fried frog legs aside.
  • In the same pan, heat some more oil and saute onions, green chillies, ginger and garlic. When it starts turning brown, add chilly powder, pepper powder, turmeric powder, coriander powder and garam masala.
  • When this is getting done, add a tsp of chilly garlic sauce. Once the masala is done, add soya sauce and roast it for 1 more minute.
  • When done, add a little water just enough to make a thick gravy. Add salt as rrquired.
  • When the gravy starts boiling, add the fried frog legs and mix it together. Be careful while mixing as the legs would tear easily. Leave it for some time until water is gone and the gravy covers the frog legs. Remove from flame and add some coriander leaves and chopped green onions.
