the perfect appetizer when you are cooking for a crowd.

Tandoori Chicken Wings are a popular dish in the Indian cuisine. The Tandoori Chicken Wings are marinated in yogurt, ginger-garlic paste, lemon juice and spices. These wings are then cooked in a clay oven called Tandoor or in a regular oven for about 30 to 40 minutes.

The tandoori chicken wings recipe is relatively easy to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients. It can be served as a starter or an appetizer and is ideal for any parties, picnic or a Sunday brunch with mint chutney or raita.
