(KTVI)- Chef Eddie Schmidt, from Le Cordon Bleu College of Culinary Arts St. Louis, prepares Tandoori Chicken Wings.
The recipe for the wings is from the new movie, "The Hundred-Foot Journey."
3/4 tbsp of sweet paprika
1 tbsp garam masala
1 tbsp ground cumin
1 tbsp ground coriander
salt and pepper to taste
1/2 tsp(s) ground turmeric
1 cup of chopped cilantro
1 tbsp finely grated fresh ginger
5 cloves of minced garlic
1/4 cup fat-free Greek yogurt
1/2 cup canola oil
1 minced shallot
3 tbsp white vinegar
1 tbsp lemon juice
4 lbs chicken drumsticks
1. Preheat the oven to 450 degrees F. Set a rack on each of 2 large baking sheets. In a small skillet, toast the paprika, garam masala, cumin, coriander, and turmeric over low heat. Stir for approx 2 minutes. Transfer the spices to a bowl and let cool. Next, mix in the ginger, garlic, yogurt, lemon juice, salt, pepper, and 2 tablespoons of the oil.
2. Before cooking the chicken, cut 3 slashes in each drumstick. Toss the chicken with 2 tablespoons of canola oil and season with salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add the spiced yogurt from Step 1, and rub it onto the chicken. Arrange the chicken on the racks, leaving 2 inches between the pieces. Roast for 45 minutes, turning occasionally, until the chicken is golden brown and cooked through. Broil the chicken 6 inches from the heat for about 5 minutes, until lightly charred.
3. In a small bowl, stir the cilantro, shallot, vinegar, and 1/4 cup of oil; salt to taste to serve with the chicken.
