Tandoori Chicken Wings Recipe


Inspired by the gorgeous dishes in The Hundred-Foot Journey, I decided to make Tandoori Chicken Wings using a recipe card provided by the “The Hundred-Foot Journey” I was given during a recent interview with the cast. It was wonderful!

Here’s the recipe brought to you by The Hundred-Foot Journey:

3/4 Tbsp sweet paprika
1 Tbsp garam masala (I made my own, but you may also buy a blend in the spice section)
1 Tbsp ground cumin
1 Tbsp coriander
Salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp ground turmeric
1 cup chopped cilantro
1 Tbsp finely grated ginger
5 cloves of minced garlic
1/4 cup fat~free greek yogurt
1/2 cup canola oil
1 minced shallot
3 Tbsp white vinegar
1 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
4 lbs chicken drumsticks



1. Preheat. oven to 450° F. Set racks on each of 2 large backing sheets. In a small skillet, toast the paprika, garam masala, cumin, coriander, and turmeric over low heat. Stir for approx. 2 minutes. Transfer the spices to a bowl and let cool. Next, mix in the ginger garlic, yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper and 2 tablespoons of the oil.


2. Before cooking the chicken, cut 3 slashes in each drumstick. Toss the chicken with 2 tablespoons of the canola oil and season with salt and pepper in large bowl. Add the spiced yogurt from step 1, and rub it onto the chicken. Arrange the chicken on the racks, leaving 2 inches in between the pieces. Roast for 45 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Broil the chicken 6 inches from the heat for about 5 minutes, until lightly charred.


3. In a small bowl, stir the cilantro, shallot, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of oil; salt to taste to serve with the chicken.
