  • 15 chicken wings *see notes

1st Marinade

2nd Marinade

  • 2 tablespoon corn flour
  • 2 tablespoon rice flour
  • 2 tablespoon all purpose flour (maida)
  • 1 tablespoon kashmiri chilli powder
  • 1 teaspoon red chilli powder
  • ½ teaspoon black pepper powder
  • teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoon water adjust as needed


First Marination

  • In a large bowl, mix together red chilli paste, ginger garlic paste, soy sauce, chilli vinegar, and salt.
  • Add in the chicken wings, coat the chicken with the marinade, and let the chicken marinate in the spice mix for 15-20 minutes.

Second Marination

  • In a bowl, mix together corn flour, rice flour, maida, red & kashmiri chilli powder, salt & pepper powder, and add the mix to the marinated chicken wings, along with some water, and mix everything together. Adjust the quantity of water required little by little as there will be some moisture from the earlier marinade.
  • The goal is to get a semi thick paste-like marinade, that you will need to ensure is applied somewhat evenly over the wings right before frying them.

Frying Chicken Wings

  • In a frying pan, heat up the oil, and add in the chicken wings (ensuring to spread the marinade somewhat evenly on the wing), a few at a time, so as to not overcrowd the pan, and fry for 5-7 minutes on medium flame, till the chicken has cooked, and has turned crisp and golden brown.
  • Serve fried chicken wings with a dip of your choice.



  1. I have used chicken wings that were pre cut into 2 pieces, and the wing tip discarded. If you have the full wing, then cut it into 2 at the joint to get the two pieces, and discard the wingtip.
  2. If you want a stronger garlic flavor, instead of using red chilli paste, you can use half and half of red chilli paste and chilli garlic paste, or just substitute red chilli paste with chilli garlic paste.
