Total Time:
45 mins


  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil

  • 1/2 medium onion, minced

  • 4 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons curry powder

  • 1/4 cup chile-garlic sauce

  • 1/2 cup tomato sauce

  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce

  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar

  • 2 pounds chicken wings, split

  • Kosher or sea salt, to taste

  • Fresh cracked black pepper, to taste

  • 1 cup all-purpose flour, for dredging

  • Vegetable oil (or other high flashpoint oil), for frying

  • Chopped cilantro, for garnish


  1. Heat a saucepan over medium heat. Add the olive oil and stir in the onions and garlic. Cook for 1 to 2 minutes, or until the onions and garlic are lightly browned.

  2. Stir in the curry powder, chile-garlic sauce, tomato sauce, soy sauce and brown sugar. Reduce heat to low and simmer the sauce for about 3 to 5 minutes or until thickened. Set aside.

  3. Rinse the chicken wings and pat them dry. Generously season the chicken with salt and black pepper. Dredge the wings in flour, shaking off any excess flour, and set aside.

  4. In a large saucepan or deep fryer, heat the oil to about 375°. Fry the chicken wings in small batches until golden brown, 8 to 10 minutes. Shake off any excess oil and place on paper towels to drain. Continue frying the chicken in batches until all of the wings are cooked.

  5. Toss chicken wings in the curry sauce and garnish with cilantro. Serve warm.
