Baked/Grilled Chicken Wings with Indian Spices


All grills out to kick start the rite-of-the season yet? I bet most of you guys have planned for a BBQ this long weekend right? I have heard the memorial day weekend marks the official start of the Barbecue season. Kebabs , hot dogs and burgers..time to get grilled and we thrilled!!!

If you have a Mannings' and Lebron crazy partner just like me , you can't just really wait for the sun to shine and start grilling. You really need to have some recipes that are handy especially for game days; thats when this recipe comes to the rescue, you can either grill it or just bake it.

Back home in Kerala , I did not even know chicken curry we make  had wings in it , and initially here , I used to view all those who eat the wings with a disgusting look. Now things changed and we are sort of addicted to it , a must have on exciting game days and sometimes as an appetizer @ parties.


Talking about Lebron James , can I really blame N for going crazy about him..Not really!!! Once upon a time, I used to get so mad with all these games , and then N took me for a game. That too court side seat directly opposite to JayZ( Beyonce didn't show up that day ) , and minutes after the game started even " the no clue about basketball" me started howling and rooting and booing . Wonder whether the drinks and the food they served did the trick ;)..Oh boy , that guy is really good!!!


You still have the chance to enter the giveaway of Monica Bhide's Modern Spice and it ends on Tuesday May 31st midnight, EST. You can leave your comments in the previous post

We are off to a vacation today , for a couple of days, a much deserved break for both of us. So will miss some BBQ parties we have been invited to, this long weekend. Anyways , we made this and commenced the season thus ;).


Recipe for Baked or Grilled Chicken Wings with Indian Spices 

(Serves 2-3 hungry people)

Ingredients:-
Chicken wings - 1 kg or  roughly 2 lbs
Bowl 1
Kashmiri Red chili powder - 1 table spoon
Ground Coriander - 1/2 table spoon
Ground Cumin - 1 tea spoon
Turmeric powder - a large pinch
Garam Masala - 1/2 to 1 tea spoon ( i use mix of green cardamom, cloves, star anise and cinnamon)
Onion chopped - 1 small or use 1.5 tea spoon of onion powder instead
Garlic chopped - 4 or 5 cloves or 1/2 to 1 tea spoon of garlic powder 
Ginger chopped - a small piece or 1/2 tea spoon of ginger powder
Yogurt 1/2 cup
Salt to taste
Bowl 2
Soy Sauce or Red wine vinegar - 2 table spoon (thats kin of my secret ingdnt, don't use if you don't like it )
Juice of 1 fresh lemon 
Olive oil or any cooking oil - 1 table spoon

Directions
Clean and remove the tip off the wings. If desired cut from the joints to make it two.
Place all the ingredients in Bowl 1 in a blender or food processor and puree it. 
Add a little water if needed. Reserve a table spoon marinade for later .
Marinate the chicken pieces with the paste and refrigerate it for minimum 4 or up to 24 hours.

Baking :- Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Place the marinated chicken pieces in an greased baking sheet and bake for 30-40 minutes. Meanwhile to make the glaze,combine all the ingredients in Bowl 2,  and the reserved marinade and make a thin paste . After 30 or 40 minutes, take out the chicken , baste it with the glaze on both sides and bake again for 15 to 25 minutes. if you want you can increase the temp to 400 degrees...Baking time depends on how you want it to be. I hate to see any pink inside , so i bake for a total of an hour plus, basting it halfway through.

Grill:- Light your grill to medium hot. Grease it with cooking spray. When its smoking hot , arrange the wings an inch apart without overcrowding and let grill for 12-14 minutes on each side , glazing with the glaze in between .

Serve warm with Lemon wedges , sliced onion, Mint chutney , Ketchup and a Soda..Yummoo!!!


Have a Great Weekend
Sarah

An Open Book said...

that and a bottle of beer..my kinda weekend:)
but honestly the wings kinda pit me off...i don know why..so i always buy the pre marinated one..which is very lightly marinated and then add my marinade which is usually the buffalo seasoning which i love.
Have a great weekend..its a long weekend here as well but weather forecast says its gonna be over cast and raining..and our bbq season started long back, so its just gonna be a weekend at home i suppose:)

Plateful said...

I'm not a huge fan of wings but I'd want to bbq chicken with that marinade... your grills look perfectly browned and scrumptious to the bite! Photos pinne parayendathilallo....brilliant work, Sarah!!
