Curried Braised Wings

Web20.Chickens's picture
  Chicken wings 3 Pound (12 Wings)
  Vegetable oil 2 Tablespoon
  Onion 1
  Ground cumin 2 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄4 Teaspoon
  Tomato paste 2 Tablespoon
  Unsweetened coconut milk 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Water 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs)
  Salt To Taste
  Dried red pepper 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh mint leaves 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Packed)
  Yogurt 1⁄2 Cup (8 tbs) (Plain Regular Or Low-Fat)
  Cooked rice 2 Cup (32 tbs), reheated (Leftover)

1. Remove the wing tips and discard them or save them for making stock. With scissors, cut out the V-shaped flap of skin at the joint to create a neater, meatier wing.
2. Heat the vegetable oil in a wide nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add the wings and saute them until golden, 3 minutes per side. (If you don't have a large enough skillet, do this in two batches, which will add 7 or 8 minutes to your cooking time.) During this time, finely slice the onion; combine the cumin, cinnamon, and ginger together in a small bowl; and measure out the remaining ingredients.
3. Remove the wings to a plate, and add the onion slices to the skillet. Saute over high heat until tender, golden brown, and caramelized, 5 minutes. If they begin to stick, just add a tablespoon of water.
4. Add the spice mixture, and whisk in the tomato paste and coconut milk. Remove the skillet from the heat, add the water, and whisk the ingredients together to blend them. Season with 1 teaspoon salt and red pepper flakes to taste.
5. Bring the liquid to a boil, return the wings to the sauce, and cover. Simmer over low heat, turning the wings once until cooked through, 15 to 20 minutes. While they are cooking, finely chop the mint.
6. Remove the wings to a plate. Add the yogurt and mint to the sauce, and adjust the seasoning; spoon the sauce over the wings and serve immediately.
