Tandoori Chicken Wings

Ingredients
5
pounds chicken wing drumettes* (about 50)
1
8 ounce can tomato sauce
1
6 ounce carton plain fat-free yogurt
1
medium onion, cut into wedges
1
tablespoon ground coriander
4
cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
2
teaspoons chopped fresh ginger
1 1/2
teaspoons salt
1
teaspoon cumin seeds
1
teaspoon garam masala
1/2
teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
1/4
teaspoon red food coloring
2
whole cloves
1
recipe Raita

Directions

  1. Place the chicken drumettes in a 3-quart rectangular baking dish; set aside.
  2. For tandoori masala, in a blender or food processor combine tomato sauce, yogurt, onion, coriander, garlic, ginger, salt, cumin seeds, garam masala, cayenne pepper (if desired), food coloring, and cloves. Cover and blend or process to form a very smooth paste (the color should be deep red).
  3. Pour tandoori masala over chicken; turn chicken to coat. Cover and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours.
  4. Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Arrange chicken in a single layer on the unheated rack of a large broiler pan. (If necessary, bake and broil the chicken in batches.) Bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to broil. Broil chicken 4 to 5 inches from the heat for 6 to 8 minutes or until chicken is no longer pink and pieces just start to blacken, turning once halfway through broiling. Serve chicken with Raita.

*Tip:

If you can't find chicken drumettes, use 25 chicken wings. Cut off and discard tips of chicken wings or reserve for making broth. Cut wings at joints to form 50 pieces.
