Chennai Chicken Wings Recipe


For the Sauce:

For the Ginger Oil:


  1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F (230 degrees C).

  2. Combine cornstarch and rice flour in a bowl. Add cayenne pepper, paprika, cumin, garam masala, turmeric, black pepper, and salt. Whisk the spicy chicken coating until nicely blended. Set aside.

  3. Pour rice vinegar into another bowl. Add red onion and sliced ginger. Toss in chives, sambal, and red pepper flakes. Stir the vinegar sauce until well combined.

  4. Add wings to the spice coating in batches. Flip bowl repeatedly to toss the wings until thoroughly coated. Transfer wings onto nonstick baking sheets. Drizzle vegetable oil on top.

  5. Bake in the center of the preheated oven for 15 minutes.

  6. Meanwhile, mix grated ginger and 2 tablespoons oil together. Turn wings over and brush the ginger oil on top.

  7. Continue baking until dry and browned, 15 to 20 minutes more. An instant-read thermometer inserted near the bone should read 165 degrees F (74 degrees C).

  8. Flip wings over into the oils and let rest for 3 to 4 minutes. Scrape a fork over the wings to test for crunchiness.

  9. To enjoy the wings ‘wet,’ place a portion of the wings into a bowl and spoon in some of the vinegar sauce. Toss until coated. For ‘dry’-style, plate the dry wings and simply dip into the sauce.
