Spicy - Sweet Chicken Wings

The recipe for the wings was adapted from Suvir Saran's American Masala... I changed some ingredients and methods...

Ingredients for wings:

  • 1 ounce jaggery, grated (recipe calls for 5 tablespoons honey, but I was out)
  • 2 tablespoons veg oil
  • salt, to taste
  • 1 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon garam masala
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 - 1 teaspoon chilli powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 2 pounds chicken wings
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice (recipes calls for white wine vinegar)
Combine jaggery, oil, salt, pepper, garam masala, paprika, chili powder, cumin and lime juice. Place along with wings in a freezer bag and marinate overnight.

Preheat oven to 400º F. Arrange chicken wings in a baking dish (the book calls for roasting on a wire rack) and bake for about 35 minutes, checking to make sure the chicken is done. You can throw the wings under the broiler to make them crispier. Enjoy!
