Begin to cook


  1. Chicken legs are thoroughly washed, the bones are removed, open the meat in the layer. Mix the salt and sweet paprika with olive oil, grease the resulting mixture with chicken legs. We put them in a bag and arrange in the fridge for two hours.
  2. In a large frying pan, we warm up a glass of vegetable oil without a smell, fry the legs on high fire. Initially we put the side where the skin, fry 3-5 minutes on one side, then the same amount of minutes on the other. But, please, be careful, as your meat should become brown, not burnt. After that we put it into a bowl.
  3. Into the oil, where the meat was being roasted, it is necessary to put the onions cut into half rings. Fry on high heat for about one minute.
  4. Peeled carrots, cut into rings are put in a frying pan together with onions. Fry all together for another minute, stirring constantly.

  6. Then we put eggplants into the frying pan, cut into half-rings (of about 5 millimeters thick).
  7. In two minutes, add to the vegetables the tomato paste, dry paprika and garlic, rubbed on a large grater.
  8. The last component in the pan is the paprika, cut into large pieces (we have just cut it into 6 pieces).
  9. Mix everything well, add a little water to cover the vegetables. Salt to taste, add black ground pepper. Stir everything again.
  10. From above the vegetables we have to lay out meat. Cover the dish with a lid and leave on small fire of 15 minutes.
  11. You can this dish in two main ways. The first way: put the meat into one bowl, and the vegetables — into the other.
  12. The second way: put meat in a deep dish and vegetables with sauce onto it.
