My mom always makes this when we visit my parents place and it is a favourite of my son also, off course we also love it.  The other day we got this to make it as my son loves these. Here I have not used much red chillie powder as my son also eats them. You can add more red chilli as per your taste. I thought it would be difficult making it but it is actually very easy to make it and super tasty. I somehow find the tandoori we get here from outside a bit dry. But these homemade wings were nice and moist. As marinating is a key step to making this yummy, one should keep it marinating at least for ½ an hour.  As we don’t have tandoor’s at home’s normally I make it pan fried and it tastes yum. It’s a nice option for trying this yummy wings at home.


What do we need:-

5 pieces Chicken wings/drumsticks

¼ cup Curds (dahi)

2 tbsp fresh cream

1 tbsp Ginger paste (adrak)

1 tbsp Garlic paste (lehsun)

1 tsp Garam masala

1 pinch Dried fenugreek leaves powder (karuri methi powder)

1 tsp Black pepper, crushed (kalimirch)

1 pinch Coriander seed powder (dhania powder)

1 tsp Red chilli powder (you can add more if you want)

1 pinch Cumin powder (jeera powder)

½ tsp Lemon juice (nimbu)

2 tbsp Oil

Salt to taste


How do we do it:-

1 wash the chicken wings nicely in running water.

2 Make 3-4 small cuts on each chicken wing and keep aside.

3 Take a mixing bowl and add all the ingredients and mix nicely.

4 Add the chicken wings to the marinate and coat them nicely.

5 Keep them to marinate for at least ½ an hour.

6 Heat a non-stick pan. Add little oil if you want.

7 Put the marinated chicken wings in the pan and cover it with lid.

8 Keep it on a low flame so as not to burn them.

9 after 5-7 minutes remove the lid and flip them to other side cover and keep again.

10 Fry them nicely from all sides. When the chicken turns white from pink then its done.

11 Check if its cooked or else let it be for few minutes.

12 Serve them hot with any salad or dip.
