All-Purposer Flour (Maida) – 1/4 cup

Garlic – 1 Tbsp (approx 5 large cloves), minced
Green Chilies – to taste, minced
Tamarind Paste – 1/4 cup (less if using dark concentrated tamarind) or to taste
Water – 1 cup
Salt – to taste (use sparingly as sauce will reduce in volume)
Red Chili Powder – to taste
Kashmiri Mirch (or Paprika) – 1 tsp

Jaggery – 1 Tbsp (substitute sugar or brown sugar)

For the Dipping Sauce: (amounts can vary depending on how much sauce you need)

Mix all ingredients together.


1. Wash and pat dry Chicken Wings and Drummets with a paper towel.

4. Cover and refrigerate the wings for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour.
5. Preheat oven to 400F/205C
6. Sprinkle All-Purpose Flour over the wings and toss to coat well.
7. Line a baking sheet with parchment paper or foil and place the wings in a single layer on the baking sheet. If using foil, lightly coat it with oil.
8. Spray wings lightly with Spray Cooking Oil. Bake the wings for 30 minutes, flip them to the other side, and bake for another 30 minutes. Depending on the size of the wings, baking time may vary.
9. While the wings are baking, prepare the sauce.
10. Heat 1 Tbsp Oil in a saucepan.
11. Add powdered Fennel Seeds, Ginger, Garlic and Green Chilies. Cook on low heat for 30 seconds.

14. Add Water, cover and cook until it comes to a boil.
15. Add Salt, Red Chili Powder, Kashmiri Mirch (or Paprika) and Garam Masala. Mix well and cook on medium until sauce is reduced to 1/2 the quantity.

17. Remove wings from the oven to a large mixing bowl.
18. Pour sauce over the wings and toss to coat evenly.
19. Serve immediately with dipping sauce.
