A lip smacking, juicy wonder
I think I made these chicken wings for a party about a year back… and then another and another. Well this is such a fail proof recipe that I just can’t skip it at any dinner party. And add to that the fact that once your friends and family eat it, they will ask you to keep making it.
I got this recipe online at Deeba’s blog (I have given the link at the end). And she mentions, this recipe is from the cookbook – Modern Spice by Monica Bhide. I give 5 stars to the recipe. Trust me on this, you have to try this recipe. And for all the vegetarians out there, just toss out the chicken and toss in some potatoes, beans, carrots, etc. This serves about 3-4 persons.
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon ginger-garlic paste
- ½ teaspoon ground turmeric
- ½ teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 ½ teaspoon ground coriander
- 2 teaspoons red chili flakes
- 2 tablespoons lemon juice
- 1 ½ teaspoons dried fenugreek leaves, crushed
- 1 teaspoon dried mango powder
- 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
- 1 ½ teaspoons salt
- ¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
- 10-12 chicken wings
- Mix the cream with all the ingredients except the wings.
- Marinate the wings in this mixture for about 3 hours (I have made this recipe after marinating for about 1 hour as well and it turns out absolutely delicious).
- Turn on the broiler and preheat the oven to 500 deg F.
- On a baking dish line the wings in a single layer and pour the marinade over the chicken. (Keep about half aside for later).
- Broil the wings till they are brown on one side, turn it and let it brown on the other side as well. (This takes about 10-12 minutes)
- Turn over one last time and let it cook for another 5 mins.
- Cook the left over marinade on the stovetop for a delicious dipping sauce.
This recipe takes about 10-15 minutes of prep time, 1-3 hrs marination time and 20 minutes if cooking time. I have made this dish with shrimp or vegetables instead of chicken wings and they turn out to be absolutely delicious as well. The only change I have made to the original recipe from http://www.passionateaboutbaking.com/2009/06/indian-chicken-wings-the-monica-bhide-way.html is to reduce the number of wings to marinade proportion.
I love chicken wings but the original american version is half the time deep fried and are not as flavorful as these. These chicken wings are easy to make, less messy and heavenly!!!
