Crispy Fried Chicken Wings

Crispy Fried Chicken Wings

This is one of my favorites..good crispy fried chicken which is a little spicy too. Mostly I make curry, roast or bake chicken but once in a while it is fun to change it a bit.There is little garam masala and chilly powder to spice it up a bit and make it extra flavorful.This recipe is for all those fried chicken lovers out there :)

Chicken wings- 1 lb

To marinate
Ginger garlic paste-1 tsp
Chilly powder/paprika- 1/2 tsp
Pepper powder- 1/2 tsp
Chicken masala/Garam masala-1/2
salt to taste
Corn starch- 2 tbs

Milk- 1 tbs

All purpose flour- 1 1/2 cup
Garlic salt- 1 tsp
Onion powder- 2 tsp
Paprika- 1 tsp
Oil- 1 1/3 cup
(I used canola,you can also substitute with peanut oil)

Cut wings in  between the joint into two. Cut the tips off the wings at the last joint. Wash and pat dry using paper towel and keep the chicken ready.
Note: If you have time you can add buttermilk with the chicken and keep in fridge over night to make it soft and juicy in the center.When it is ready to be fried drain off the excess buttermilk and mix in the rest of the ingredients.

Mix in with the chicken all the ingredients listed under 'to marinate' and keep aside for 20-30 minutes.

To prepare for the dredging in a bowl beat two eggs and one tbs of milk.
In a separate plate mix in the flour,onion powder,garlic salt and paprika. Taste the flour and if needed add more salt or garlic salt.
Take each piece of  chicken and roll in the seasoned flour, then into the egg mixture and then back into the flour. Shake off the excess flour and keep aside
Meanwhile heat oil in a heavy bottom wide pan or a cast-iron skillet. Fry chicken in batches. Do not over crowd and fry in a uniform heat. Keep on turning the chicken between every minute and fry till it is golden brown and crispy. This will take at least 7-8 minutes per batch. Once done drain on paper towel to take off the excess oil. Crispy chicken wings is ready..

Try this...
Hope you ill all enjoy

Fish curry and rice or fish curry and kappa pukku is the absolute comfort food for every malayali. The state is blessed  with long coast line, backwaters and lake and Keralites are great fish eaters. Red fish curry tastes awesome and you can find this type of fish curry everywhere-in  homes, restaurants,toddy shops or boat houses for tourists. Even though this curry is staple for the malayalis, you will still find a lot of regional variation to this recipe. Each region and each home has its own adaption of fish curry.
