South African Braai Drumsticks

In South Africa the word “braai” means cooking over an open fire. The culture of grilling is as ingrained there as it is in the U.S., with backyard cooks passionate about the seasonings they use. This marinade reflects the Cape Malay influences, highly flavored with spices. Serve with a lightly dressed salad of curly endive or radicchio lettuce.
