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 …

Grilled Mint Chicken Wings

Be prepared for these wings they take 4 hours to marinade but trust me when I say it’s worth it.
I also have 15 guests that backed this, even though some of them got more chilli than they hoped for :-)

He seemed to be struggling with the heat…
