  • Break an egg into the bowl and combine well.
  • Cut the chicken wings to two making it a drumette and a wingette each.
  • Drain off any water from the chicken pieces and add to the mixing bowl.
  • Get all the chicken wings coated uniformly with the batter.
  • Let it sit for 15 minutes.
  • Heat a pan and add 2 cups of oil.
  • We are going to deep fry the chicken. So add more oil depending on the size of the pan.
  • Once the oil reaches the smoking point (on a high flame), slowly place the chicken pieces to the pan.
  • My pan could hold only 4 pieces at a time.
  • After placing the chicken pieces, reduce to a low flame.
  • Let the chicken fry for 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Turn over and fry the other side as well.
  • Don't let the batter burn, but ensure that chicken is cooked through.
  • You can turn around the pieces if required.
  • Take out the fried chicken using a slotted spoon and place on kitchen towels to drain off the oil.
  • Coarsely grind the green chillies and shallots. I crushed them to a paste using a mortar and pestle.
  • Add salt and oil and combine well to form a thick dipping sauce, paste.
