Cooking is a learning curve.I learn new techniques and flavour pairings everyday.I have recently started buying cookbooks(thanks for the initiation Gopika Bashi!) and there is sooo much to try and experience!
I bought this amazing cookbook called “The best Recipes in the world” by Mark Bittman.This book is like dipping your little toe in each culinary realm one by one.It’s not an exhaustive book but it does try and introduce you to different cuisines and the ingredients that make those cuisines.It’s so interesting that I have sleepless nights about food now!
Inspired from this book,I have tried three different flavour pairings loosely based around Indian,Mexican and Asian flavors.
The beauty of this recipe is that you don’t have to be an experienced cook to make these chicken wings.You don’t have to stand on the counter dip them in egg wash and flour etc and fry chicken wings in the hot oil.It’s a prep and stick in the oven kinda recipe.Its so simple to make that all you need are the wings and some salt.The chicken wings bake in their own fat and get crisp.
The sauce doesn’t have to be fancy..You can start with just salt and lemon maybe toss in some ketchup and then graduate to more interesting sauces-like the ones I have made the wings in.Scroll below.
You can make these ahead of your party ,heat them in the microwave or oven and toss them in the desired sauce just before serving.
I have also made baked tamarind chicken wings in the past.You can also check out the recipe for the tamarind chicken wings.
