Grilled Tandoori chicken wings

Yumm… seriously yumm, so easy, quick (except for the marination time), it is one of my favourite starter food of late. Just marinate the chicken wings in the masala (store bought or home made) and grill it till done… that’s it.

Ingredients

Chicken Wings – 500 grams

Chilly powder – 2 tsp

Coriander powder – 1 tsp

Turmeric powder – 1/2 tsp

Cumin powder – 1/2 tsp

Garam Masala – 1/2 tsp

Hung curd – 1/2 cup (normal curd put through a strainer suspended over a bowl for half an hour)

Lemon juice- 1/2 lemon

Mustard oil – 1 tsp (you can use more)

Dried Mint leaves – 1 tsp (crushed)

Dried Fenugreek leaves – 1 tsp (crushed)

Salt – to taste

Water – as required

Method

Make a paste with all the ingredients except chicken wings, using a little water. Marinate the chicken wings for at least an hour. Half an hour is barely sufficient, overnight is awesome. Preheat the oven/grill/tandoor and bake it for ten minutes on one side. Flip it to the other side and cook for 5 minutes. You can test the doneness by touching the surface. If there is any sticky masala pop it in the oven for a couple of minutes more. Thats it.. simple isn’t it?

Serve hot with Mint chutney.
