What can I tell you about this recipe apart from it’s quick, easy and so, so delicious, you’ll never make wings any other way.

30 minute Masala Wings & Dip

The beauty of this particular dish is you need one set of ingredients for both the wings and the dip and the even better news is that there is…. NO MARINATION TIME REQUIRED!!….You literally mix up all the ingredients, chuck them into a baking tray, whack in the oven and 30 minutes later you will be licking your fingers. Let’s face it – you cannot eat wings any other way than using your fingers right? Alternatively, finish them off on the barbeque if you like the extra charred flavour.

You can grind your own fresh masala, or alternatively, if you don’t have the spices in whole form – mix up the powder form but use half the listed amounts. Sadly I had no fresh coriander when I made them – but do use it as a garnish if you do and also add it to the dip- we all know coriander is the food of the Gods!

I have used a lot of green chilli in this recipe – but then that’s a Punjabi thing, as most of us cannot sit at a meal unless we are gasping for breath whilst we eat, don’t ask as I have no explanation for it. Hot sauce with any non-Indian meal, a green chilli on the plate if the chilli content isn’t off the scale….however, please use chillies to suit your own palate. Remember you will be getting the heat from the black peppercorns and the ginger too.
