  1. Marinate the Wings: In a bowl, combine the chicken wings with salt, red chilli powder, black pepper, and a grated ginger-garlic mixture. Massage the spices well onto the wings and set aside to marinate for at least 30 minutes.

2. Prepare the coating: In another bowl, whisk together the flour, cornflour, remaining spices, and herbs. This dry mixture will create a crispy crust for the wings.

3. Rub and Fry: Heat oil in a large pot or deep fryer to medium-high heat (around 350°F). Rub each marinated wing thoroughly in the flour mixture, making sure they are coated evenly. Carefully add the wings to the hot oil and fry for 10–12 minutes, or until golden brown and cooked through. Remove the wings and drain them on paper towels.

Viola! You have made delicious chicken wings.
