I’m not sure what took me so long in sharing a Tandoori wings recipe because I’ve shared a lot of “tandoori” inspired meals on my blog so far, but you guys are going to be SO glad I finally did!! These wings are SOOO good, and they’re not fried OR marinated for an annoyingly long period of time.
I actually prefer baked wings because they’re super tender and not dried out ! The trick is cooking them covered first, and then uncovering them just for a little bit to crisp them up a bit.
Marinating these wings in yogurt also makes the meat super tender and the tandoori masala gives the wings that great color and a nice smoky flavor ! Just make sure to use full fat whole milk yogurt so the marinade is thick and not watery.
I served these wings with the scallion jalapeño crema from my black bean nachos and legit, it was a PARTY in my mouth!! Not to toot my own horn, but these wings were SO DAMN good. I sat down and most of them right after I was done photographing them!
I think using paneer as a sub for the chicken would also be delicious! Also serving these with some fresh sliced onions, lots of cilantro and a few wedges of lemon is key!!
