SPICY CHICKEN WINGS (Chicken winglets marinated in pomegranate juice)

I am forever on the lookout for some good snacks, since my hubby is the kind of person who is really into finger foods!,this recipe was an instant hit in the house, read on and you will know why!!


  • Fresh chicken wings- 1/2 kg
  • pomegranate juice- 1/2 cup
  • Ginger and garlic paste- 1/4 tsp
  • Red chilli flakes- 1/2 tsp
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Refined oil -to deep fry
  • Star-anise a pinch
  • Cinnamon -a pinch


Marinate the chicken in the above ingredients and leave covered in the refrigerator overnight, next day blot on kitchen towels and deep fry in hot oil till crisp. I served these with a store brought thai sweet chilli sauce and a fresh salad on the side dressed with just olive oil and lemon juice, delicious!

SPRING ONION GRAVY CHICKEN (Hare pyaaz wala murg)

Don't we all just adore these fresh spring onions?, I try to use them as a substitute for regular onions as much as I can, and with excellent results!.If however you do not have them at hand then use regular onions instead, both yield excellent results!This recipe is a very rustic home-style one which is very good with chapatis or rice-but I love it with a slice of crusty bread soaking up the gravy!!

              spring onions

                                            Fresh Spring Onions 


  • Fresh chicken- 1
  • Spring onions-3-4
  • Tomato puree- 1/2 cup
  • Ginger and garlic paste- 1 tsp
  • Garam masala- 1 tsp
  • Pure desi ghee- 3 tbsp
  • Coriander leaves- a handful
  • Fresh cream- 1 tbsp.
  • Green cardamom-2-3
  • Salt and pepper to taste


Heat the ghee in a non-stick pan, add the washed chicken pieces and fry till they start turning crisp and golden,remove and keep aside(they will be however partially cooked).

In the same ghee add ginger and garlic paste and the sliced spring onions, fry till they turn pale, add the tomatoes and cook till it leaves sides of pan, transfer to a pressure cooker, add the chicken ,the garam masala and 1/2 cup hot water along with the salt, cardamom(crushed) and pepper,close lid give one rapid whistle and remove immediately , put under running water, transfer to a serving pan and garnish with fresh coriander leaves and some fresh cream if desired.
