  • Rub salt over wings in a shallow dish, then rub spice paste all over. Cover and refrigerate, 4 hours to overnight.

  • Preheat an outdoor grill for high heat and lightly oil the grate. Add wings and cook, turning halfway, until well browned, 15 to 20 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

Cook's Note:

You can also cook these in an oiled grill pan.

Wow. These taste great! Definitely try to marinade them as long as possible. I’ve tried them overnight and just 1 hour. It’s like a completely different wing if you wait overnight. Well worth it! Read More

I made these for a group "Indian themed" carry-in and they were a HIT! I followed the recipe just as it is but was only able to marinate them for 2 hours due to time constaints. I cooked them on a my GMG pellet smoker at 375 and then put them in my crockpot for transportation and keeping hot. I will definitely be making these again! First time I have ever experimented with Indian spices and cooking. What an eye opener for me. Loved Them! Read More

A nice change of pace from the usual chicken wings! I love Indian flavors and this is the perfect mashup. These have some heat so if you're sensitive to spicy foods cut back on the chile. I served mine sprinkled with cilantro and with a homemade mango chutney yogurt dipping sauce. I marinated mine for about 24 hrs then grilled them on medium-low. They would have burned on high heat.
