5 pounds chicken wings
1 whole onion, quartered
1 8 ounce can tomato sauce
1 6 ounce carton plain yogurt
1 tablespoon coriander
4 cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2 teaspoons fresh ginger, chopped
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon cumin seeds
1 teaspoon garam masala
1/2 teaspoon cayenne, upto 1 teaspoon, optional
1/4 teaspoon red food coloring
2 whole cloves
Place chicken wings in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish.
For the tandoori masala: In a blender or food processor, combin eonion, tomato sauce, yogurt, coriander, garlic, ginger, salt, cumin seeds, garam masala, cayenne, red food coloring and whole cloves. Blend to a very smooth paste. (The color should be bright red.)
Pour the tandoori masala over the chicken wings: turn wings to coat. Cover and refrigerate for 4 to 24 hours.
Preheat oven to 400. Arrange as many of the wings on the unheated rack of a broiler pan as will fit in a singe layer. Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to broil. Broil chicken 4 to 5 inches from heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until no longer pink and pieces start to blacken, turning once halfway through broiling.
Transfer wings to a serving platter. Repeat with the rest of the wings. If desired, serve with lemon wedges and red onion wedges.
I found this recipe in a Better Homes and Garden Appetizer Magazine.
I’m not a big fan of the wings, but Justin loves them!!! So usually when we watch UFC, I make wings. I made these for UFC 124. There were less then 10 of us and I don’t eat wings, and there was a vegetarian there, and these were gone in like 20 minutes! People like them! They are a good amount of work but I believe they were worth the effort.
