Braised Wings


You Need:

  • 7 to 8 Chicken Wings.
  • 2 finely chopped green chilies.
  • A bunch of chopped coriander.
  • A teaspoon of garlic paste.
  • Juice of two lemons.
  • Two tablespoons of Honey.
  • Salt and Pepper.

Heat oil till its shimmering. Add chicken wings. Sprinkle salt.

Now no matter how hard you try, there will be some moisture on these. If you like to spend time in clean up, let them cook on the high heat spluttering away for 5 mins. However, lazy bones like me can simply cover them with a lid and let them cook on high heat for 3-4 mins. This will help contain the splatter and the trade off is acceptable for most of us.

Stir well and keep alternating between high and medium heat till the chicken is almost cooked. The skin on the wings, kind of protects them from overcooking. So relax. They will still taste damn good and not become chewy. Move the wings to the side and in the oil collected at the base add the coriander, garlic paste and chilly. When the garlic’s raw smell is gone. Mix well. Add the lemon juice and honey.

Cook on high till its drying up. Sprinkle pepper to speed up the process.

Serve with a garnish of fresh coriander.

Honey Sesame Cabbage


You need:

  • A full head of cabbage. Cut into long strips.
  • 2 tablespoons of honey
  • 2 tablespoons of sesame oil or extra virgin olive oil.
  • pepper and salt.

Super simple as always.

Just roast the cabbage on a hot grill pan. You can also broil it in the oven. But a stovetop is easier. You may need to do the cabbage in batches. As cabbage shrinks when its cooked you can add them all back into the pan before the final step.

Whisk together honey and oil. Drizzle this over the cabbage. Season with salt and pepper. Its a simple and nice dish that goes great with any grilled protein.
