A desi take on the chicken wings, this recipe is sure to become a favorite starter, snack, or even a meal from the very first time you try it. These spicy, tangy chicken wings are made using simple ingredients, all available in your kitchen. The yogurt and lime juice used in the marinade tenderize the chicken, while red chili paste, and chili powder add a zing to the chicken wings. The trick to ensure that the chicken wings are tender and crispy at the same time is to marinate the chicken for at least two hours before putting them in the oven to bake.
As these chicken wings are not fried, they are healthier, and the innate nutritional value of the chicken wings is not compromised.
