Spicy Chicken Wings

Spicy Chicken Wings

8 Large chicken wings (trimmed)
1"/2.5cm piece of fresh ginger (grated)
2 Large cloves of garlic (mashed to a paste with a little salt)
2 Teaspoons of cumin seeds (comino)
2"/5cm stick of cinnamon
1 Teaspoon of black peppercorns
1 Teaspoon of tomato paste
1 Lemon (juice of)
2 Tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil
2 Tablespoons of honey [I'd reduce or cut this out]
2 Small red chillies
Salt to taste

First dry roast the cumin seeds, cinnamon, black peppercorns and chillies in a pan and grind them together in a pestle and mortar.

Place the spices and all the other marinade ingredients in a large glass bowl, mix well an add the chicken wings, coating them well all over with the marinade.

Leave them to marinate for at least an hour (two or three would be even better).

Arange the chicken on a rack over a roasting tray of water.

Roast at 180°c/370°f for 45 minutes - turning once.

While they are cooking you can top up the water in the tray as it evaporates.

If you want a sauce, just skim off the fat and use the juices. Put them into a pan, bring to the boil and reduce by half.... check the seasoning and thicken with arrowroot if desired.
