There are two parts to this dish. The Chicken wings and the sauce.

For the Chicken Wings, you need:

  • 8 Wings with skin.
  • 3 Teaspoons of rice flour.
  • 1 Teaspoon of red chilly powder.
  • A pinch of turmeric.
  • 1 Teaspoon of Garam Masala.
  • 1 Teaspoon of Garlic paste.
  • Salt to season.

Using a spoon in a round dish, coat all the ingredients around the chicken. Don’t use your hands. The spoon will give a much better coating. Rest the chicken wings for at least 15 mins before baking them.

Place in a grill rack over a tray. Wrapping the tray with foil, makes clean up easy. A chicken wing when cut up has three parts. The thinnest part should be on the tray. The other thicker pieces must be on the grill. This protects the thin parts from getting burnt. Bake at 190C for 35-45 minutes. At around halfway mark, rotate the wings for an even cook.

For the Sauce, you need the following ingredients. There are no measures because you can adjust as per your taste.

  • Sesame oil.
  • Spring Onions, the bulbs finely chopped and the leaves cut into rings.
  • Garlic cloves
  • Honey
  • Pepper
  • Salt.
  • Ginger.

In a little vegetable oil, saute the chopped spring onion bulbs and garlic. Overcook them too the point of almost browning is highly recommended. Once cool, Mix together the sesame oil, honey, chopped ginger. Season with salt and pepper. Garnish with the spring onion leaves.

Either drizzle this over the wings or dip the wings into it. It tastes great every which way you want.
