  • 2 pounds raw chicken wings or approximately 32 wings
  • 3/4 cup plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1 to 2 teaspoons garam masala **
  • 1 to 2 tablespoons kashmiri red chili powder
  • 1 tablespoon dried fenugreek leaves optional
  • 1 inch ginger
  • 8 garlic cloves
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt
  • 2 tablespoons cilantro chopped, optional for garnish
  1. Trim as much skin off of the wings as possible. I use kitchen sheers for this. Make fine paste on ginger and garlic using a tablespoon of of water.

  2. Combine all ingredients (except cilantro) in a bowl and marinate wings for at least 1 hour or longer.
  3. Preheat oven to 400 degree. Line up wings on a greased grilling rack. Place the rack on top of the baking tray to catch all teh drippings.

  4. Bake the wings for about 20-25 mins (in a convection oven) or up to 40 mins otherwise. Wings can also be cooked on a preheated outdoor grill.

  5. Serve hot with garnish of chopped cilantro.

  6. ** Add more or less garam masala and red chili powder depending on how spicy you like them.
