This Indian-inspired take on wings has the spice but adds a complexity and depth that blows regular Buffalo wings away. These are great for dipping into Greek yogurt to add a creamy texture and cool down the heat a touch.
Technique tip: You're looking for crispy, brown wings. A wing that's a touch overdone is better than a touch underdone.
- 2 pounds chicken wings
- 1/2 cup olive oil
- 2 tablespoons honey
- 1/4 cup minced onion
- 3 tablespoons tomato paste
- 2 teaspoons ground cumin
- 2 teaspoons ground ginger

- 1 teaspoon dry turmeric
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/2 teaspoon salt
- 1 cup chopped cilantro, for garnish

Add the olive oil, honey, minced onion, tomato paste and spices to the bowl. Stir and toss until the wings are well-coated. Let sit while oven heats.3.
