Nothing fancy here, just finger lickin’ good. This works because being small, the wings have a lot of surface area (skin) for the spice rub to flavour.
1 kg chicken wings
2 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp turmeric
2 tsp garam masala
2 tsp coriander seeds, toasted in a pan and ground
2 tsp cumin seeds, toasted in a pan and ground
1 tsp fennel seeds, toasted in a pan and ground
chilli powder to taste (try 1/2 tsp)
1 tb finely chopped garlic
2 tb finely chopped ginger
Combine everything except the lemons and work into the wings with your hands. Leave in the fridge as long as you can, up to 3 days. Brush with oil and grill on the bbq or oven. Squeeze over the juice from the lemons and season if you need to.
