  • Thick Tamarind Pulp-1 cup

  • Fish Sauce-1 tablespoon
  • Garlic-chopped or paste-1 tablespoon
  • Chili Powder-1 tablespoon
  • Oil-1/2 tablespoon
  • Spring Onions for garnish


  • Mix all the ingredients other than chicken.Taste and adjust.The marinade has to be extra spicy and sweet.The spice and sweet always goes down when the chicken is cooked.
  • Marinade for 12 hours in the fridge.

Baking Method

  • Spread them on a baking sheet.Keep the left over marinade for later.
  • Preheat the oven to 230 degrees and bake the chicken wings for 20 minutes.
  • At the 20 minute mark brush the left over marinade on the chicken(this is called basting)
  • Bake for another 20 minutes till the wings are brown and charred.

Pan Sautéed Method

  • Heat the skillet or the pan for 30 seconds on high flame.
  • Place the wings on the pan and make sure they are not on top of each other.Don't overcrowd the pan.
  • Cook for 10-12 minutes on one side.Turn the wings on the other side and cook for another 10 minutes till they achieve the char you want.
