Fried Chicken Wings

Tried those chicken wings at Pizza Hut.
Yummy.. no???
None of friends liked it either. They found it too sweet. But I just loved it.
But I thought I'd give it a try.
When i was in Kolkata, we use to get fresh Chicken wings separately.
I don't know if you get it elsewhere, have to try in mumbai as well.
I don't know if a local chicken vendor would give you only wings.
Well, it can be done very quickly and easily at home.
What you need:
1. Half a Kilo of Chicken Wings.
2. 1 Tbs of corn flour.
3. 1 teaspoon Pepper corns, 1 table spoon Whole jeera,
1 teaspoon coriander powder, I teaspoon Red Chilli Powder, a few red chillis.
4. vegetable oil
5. Salt to taste.

Wash the Chicken carefully, drain the water and leave aside.
Slightly roast the Whole jeera and Peppercorn and 3 red chillis.
After roasting for a minute or two, grind well in a mixie.
Now in a mixing bowl keep the chicken wings.
Now add the ground masala, the dhania powder, the chilli powder, flour to it.
Add salt to taste and Mix well.

Heat oil in a deep bottom pan.
Fry four to five wings at a time. or more, just make sure they don't crowd the Pan.
Fry for 5 minutes and turn and fry for further 2-3 minutes.
Lay them out in a Tissue paper to absorb excess oil.
Goes very very well with Chilled Beer

Heres a totaly unorthodox merican healthy eating twist to the dish
1. get the chicken wings(24 wings for this recepie and scale accordingly)
2. In a pot fill it with water and put put corriander powderAND VINDALOO POWDER OR TIKKA MASALA POWDER
3. A little bit of powdered mirch lal mirch
4. small amt of salt this is taste dependent but put a little less than what you normaly have
5. 2 teaspoons of vineagar and 1 tea spoon of MSG free SOY sauce or black bean sauce.
6. BOIL the wings. CAREFUL dont over do it so that they become soup.
7. Mix 4 teaspoon of ghee with ararot(root arrow + a bit of your choice of flour) some folks replace ghee with their choice of oil.
8. take wings out and dip it this batter
9. HEAT THE OVEN FIRST its very iportant
10. BRUSH the wings (dont dip) in the root arrow ghee mix and put it in the oven till the ghee stops sizzling then remove and serve hot it works best when theres a small oven and a dedicated chef
you can place the onions in this diversion.
The reason to boil the wings with the flavor in the syrup is to get the flavor inside the meat and the second frying step is not deep frying.
