Masala Buffalo Wings

I used to make buffalo style wings all the time before I had kids.  I haven't made them in a long time because I didn't think my kids could eat them easily.  Well I was wrong.  They can eat them just fine now.  I made these wings and I had my kids and husband clamoring for more, more, more.  Unfortunately, I only made a small batch because I was testing the recipe.  Next time... I will make a giant batch and I won't have to ration them out.  These wings make a meal, great snack or party fare. The best part is I completely baked them in the oven so they are even more figure friendly than their deep fried cousins.

Note: ( I will give you the quantities for one pound of wings.  If you want to make multiple pounds just increase the ingredients accordingly. )

1-2 cups of buttermilk (enough buttermilk to soak the wings)
1 Tbs of grated ginger
1 Tbs of grated garlic
salt and black pepper
1 Tbs garam masala powder
2 Tbs sweet paprika powder
black pepper and salt to taste

Buffalo Sauce:
1/2 cup of hot sauce (I used Frank's Red Hot)
1 Tbs of butter

Mix marinade with wings and soak overnight or up to 24 hours.   Per heat oven to 400 degrees and lay wings in a baking tray in one layer.

Bake for 20-25 minutes and then turn over and bake for another 20-25 minutes.  You wan the meat to brown well.  In a skillet heat hot sauce and butter.

Once melted, toss baked wings sauce and serve hot. Enjoy.

  1. Looks fab! A healthier hot wing with flair. Love it! Don't you just love it when a test recipe turns into a masterpiece?

  2. So tempting n delicious dear....

  3. Oh My Gosh. I am salivating just looking at these! The thought of adding ginger and garlic to my hot wings just got my very excited!! =D

  4. Looks absolutely perfect and tempting.. very nice presentation too.. love it :)

  5. wow Gor-ge-ous (in a sing-song voice ;-P) ...
    I LOVE LOVE LOVE chicken wings, but I resist from not eating them too much :-)


  6. I love the idea of using the masala as a seasoning before putting the wing sauce on. sounds like an awesome wing recipe!

  7. Yippee, we can have more because they're baked. If all of my kids were home I'd need to make at least 7-8 lbs. My boys would have to have a pound of their own.

  8. YUM! My kids love wings and have been eating them for a while. My problem is that I cannot eat spicy food so I cook less spicy/mild food. Now they are not trained to eat spicy food... I guess slowly introduce spices? Wings with some spice might make them interested, but I'm scared they would say "this is too spicy" and end up not eating...I assume you introduced spicy food to your kids slowly? :)

    1. My daughter has been eating spicy food for a while. My son has gotten into it in the last few years. I give them milk with it... it cools the fires. Try small amounts of spice and increase it when they like it better. If you want to make these wings, you can omit the hot sauce and just try the masala marinade. The paprika is not spicy. :)

  9. What a delicious twist on buffalo wings! It's my hubby who thinks things are too kids were much easier to train :) Hope you're having a great week, Ramona!

  10. Yum! I just love the spice mixture you put on these. I want to try them.

  11. Totally love this, Ramona. Bookmarked!! Thank you and have a lovely weekend, my friend.

  12. What a great flavor twist there! The marinade sound great, love it with the buffalo sauce!

  13. I've got everything but the wings. Looks like I'm headed to the market! These are yummy!

  14. These would hit the spot tonight. We started craving chicken wings last weekend.
