The bone of the legs are being chopped into 6-7 inches. Before cooking these bones are nicely cleaned and marinated along with chopped onion, garlic, ginger and turmeric powder with spices. The mixture is being cooked in medium heat with lots of water until it turns into a broth while the legs are cooked. The broth or hazi is garnished with lemon juice and chopped coriander leaves.
