Sri lankan chutney chicken wings

Yield: 1 Servings

Measure Ingredient
1 pounds Chicken wings (to serve 2-4 people)
2 cups Vegetable oil for frying
1 cup Cider vinegar
1½ cup Jaggery *
2 tablespoons Chili powder
2 tablespoons Garlic; chopped
2 tablespoons Gingerroot; minced
5 \N Cardamom seeds
5 \N Whole cloves
1 \N One-inch piece cinnamon stick
2 teaspoons Salt

Heat the vegetable oil in a skillet. Clean the wings (disjointing if you prefer smaller pieces--I do) and fry until golden brown. Set aside and keep warm. In a saucepan, dissolve the jaggery or sugar in the vinegar over low heat. Cook until it is a thick syrup, then add the chili powder, garlic, ginger, cardamom seeds, cloves, and cinnamon stick; adjust the chili powder to make it more firey to taste. Continue cooking over low heat. Add salt and stir continually so that mixture doesn't stick to pan. Cook slowly over low heat for 20 minutes. Blend the sauce with the wings, coating them thoroughly, and serve hot. The cinnamon and cloves are *not* removed before serving.

NOTES:

* Jaggery: A hardened coconut treacle--i.e., molasses--similar to heavy brown sugar; a substitute can be brown sugar, or a 50/50 mix of brown sugar and molasses. The recipe says light or dark brown sugar do just fine as substitutes by themselves. ( I personally used a mix of dark brown sugar & molasses)

* I have also made this with breast meat and it worked out wonderfully that way too.
