This is what memorable summers are made of ! Ok, so about a week ago, my blogger friend Chef Ronit who blogs at ‘Tasty Eats’ posted a recipe for spicy Crispy Chicken Wings which looked so good that I instantly knew I wanted to replicate her recipe. The most intriguing part of her recipe to me was the mix of spices which was very different from the usual spices I use for Indian style grilled chicken/tandoori chicken.
However that weekend I couldn’t find any chicken wings at our grocers and so I had to use chicken drumsticks instead, which in hindsight, was not a very bad option since you get more meat here vs the wings 🙂 The next problem was I did not have the ‘blackened spice mix’ that Ronit used. But she had given details of what constituted that spice mix and so I used her guidance and my imagination a bit to come up with a ‘similar’ but at the same time somewhat different spice marinade.
I also followed Ronit’s method for roasting the chicken but since I used drumsticks I needed to cook them for a tad longer. And the result was just phenomenal! Wonderfully spiced chicken that the family loved! The entire tray of a dozen drumsticks was devoured by the 4 of us in just a few minutes!. We had an absolutely gorgeous meal outdoors with this chicken and the steamed tapioca that I posted last week. Thank you Chef Ronit! 🙂 And Happy Summer and Happy Grilling to all of you!
