Dip Style Wings

This was a very interesting wing event.
I had four recipes 3 of which are all cooked the same way but then you cover the wings in a flavour.
Two of the flouvars were pretty much exactly the same except for the Horseraddish coming through in the one.
The Avocado recipe was to die for, I know it sounds strange mixing wings with this green jewel but trust me it works.

Wings Tandoori

Tandoori is one of my favourite Indian styled foods. I must admit I don’t have a Tandoor (oven used for making tandoori).
That said this dish turned out very well, but definitely felt like it was missing that magical ingredient. I hope to one day fully recreate some Tandoori Chicken the way it should be …
