This recipe comes from Debbie Moose’s “Fan Fare,” published by The Harvard Common Press.

These Indian-inspired treats will surprise your guests, because they’re far from the average wings. Don’t over-marinate the wings or the acid in the yogurt may cause the texture of the meat to be too soft. If you prefer, you can use nectarines instead of mangoes in the chutney. Garam masala is an Indian spice blend available in supermarkets or Indian markets.


  1. 1Place the wings in 2 large zipper-top plastic bags. In a large bowl, stir together the
    yogurt, cinnamon, garam masala, coriander, cloves, turmeric, ginger, garlic, and vegetable oil, and pour half of the marinade into each bag. Seal the bags and shake gently to coat. Refrigerate for about 2 hours.
  2. 2Prepare a medium fire in a charcoal grill or preheat a gas grill.
  3. 3Remove the wings from the marinade (discard the marinade) and shake off any excess. Grill the wings, turning once halfway through, for about 30 minutes. Serve with Mint-Mango Chutney for dipping:
  4. 4To make Mint-Mango Chutney, Stir all of the ingredients (mango, lime juice, grated fresh ginger, grated garlic, chopped onion, chopped fresh mint leaves, sugar) together in a medium-size bowl, cover, and chill for 2 to 3 hours to allow the flavors to blend. When ready to serve, stir well, mashing gently.
