Easy Marinated chicken wings

Whenever we have people over, I love to use the oven for entrée so that it leaves my stove free for mains. So normally, I get spring rolls, spinach and cheese puffs and other oven baked treats for entrée. But one of my famous entrée is marinated chicken wing grilled in the oven.

Everyone who has tried it has loved and it is so easy to make.


  • 20 chicken wings
  • 2 tablespoons garlic ginger paste
  • 3 teaspoons turmeric powder
  • 3 teaspoons cumin powder
  • 3 teaspoons coriander powder
  • 3 teaspoons chilli powder (more if you want hot)
  • 2 tablespoons unflavoured Greek yogurt
  • Salt to taste


  • Make a few small incisions in each chicken wing so the marinade can go inside the meat.
  • Mix all the marinade ingredients in a bowl with the chicken wings.

  • Leave the marinated chicken for at least 3-4 hours in the fridge. I normally leave it overnight so the meat is tender and marinade goes inside.
  • Preheat the oven at 220 C.

  • Place the chicken wings in a single layer in a wide, shallow tray.
  • Cook the wings for 15–20 minutes, turning often, until golden brown (or a little darker if you prefer) and the juices run clear when the chicken is pierced with a skewer/fork.
  • Serve hot.

Kheer (Rice pudding)

Kheer (Rice Pudding) is one of the favourite dishes in Nepal and is an integral part of parties and ceremonies.  Kheer is regarded as a “pure” food in Nepal, as it is rice cooked in milk and so it is used in all pujas as well as weddings and other religious celebrations.

There are many ways to prepare Kheer and I am sharing a quick and easy recipe using sweetened condensed milk to get the desired thickness and sweetness for Kheer.  I made a big portion recently, which served 20+ people so please adjust the recipe according to your need.


  • 3 cups Arborio rice
  • 4 litres full fat milk
  • 2 tins (375 gm. each) sweetened condensed milk
  • 4 tablespoons Ghee (clarified butter)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped dry fruits
  • 2 tablespoons chopped Almonds
  • 10-15 cardamom pods sliced



  • In a big container, pour all the milk and sweetened condensed milk and bring it to boil.

  • In the meantime mix rice with ghee using your hand (do not wash rice).
