Chennai Chicken Wings

I used to exercise a novel chicken fly video every twelvemonth earlier the Super Bowl, simply that yearly ritual stopped when I form of ran out of things to exercise amongst them. Being from Western New York State, where chicken wings are every bit much a religion, every bit they are a snack, I didn’t desire these posts to larn gratuitous in addition to contrived.

However, this twelvemonth I was inspired to reestablish the tradition subsequently enjoying an appetizer called “Chennai Chicken,” served at Dosa, which is i of my favorite Indian restaurants inward San Francisco. Their version features sparse strips of pectus coasted amongst a ton of spice, in addition to deep-fried to a gorgeous brick red.  

It’s i of those dishes y’all can’t halt eating, no affair how badly your rima oris is burning, in addition to I idea it would brand a non bad approach for a batch of Buffalo wings. Since they’d never published the recipe, I did a lot of guessing here, simply mean value I got pretty close. One of the commutation ingredients is an Indian spice blend called garam masala, which isn’t likewise difficult to find, simply if y’all can’t.

As usual, experience gratuitous to alter the spice amounts every bit y’all run across fit, simply every bit I said inward the video, exercise non skip the rice vinegar sauce. It actually makes the dish. I’m non certain if these wings are likewise exotic for your Super Bowl party, or if your guests are non exotic plenty for them, simply I actually promise y’all plough over them a drive anyway. Enjoy!
