Spicy Minced Lamb Patties
I have seen many versions of this dish from using minced chicken balls with carrots sticks as the lollipop right through to using a whole chicken drumsticks. These are all great but I think using wings makes this that little bit more delicate.
As with everything that is special there is a bit of work needed and in this case preparing the wings which can be a bit of a fiddly job. It might even be worth making friends with your butcher as I am sure they would be more then willing to prep the wings for you.
Once prepped the chicken is left in a flavoured Indian batter to soak up some zingy flavours and warming spices. Once fried these little chicken bites make a delicious finger food that your guests will marvel at. I have tried them with a number of different spices but for this recipe it's all about the gentle aniseed flavour of fennel which lifts the crispy coating making them a little more special.
