Baking wings is an easier and healthier alternative to deep frying. You can achieve a lovely crispy skin without the extra fat. These wings have a nice flavour combination with just the right amount of heat. They can be eaten on their own, or with a squeeze of lime and your favourite dip, and with a side of fresh veggies.

Grape seed oil is a good source of essential fatty acids and vitamin E, along with strong antioxidant compounds. Turmeric has been used in India for thousands of years as a spice and medicinal herb. Curcumun, which is the main ingredient in turmeric, is a powerful anti-inflammatory with powerful antioxidant properties. Combining turmeric with black pepper helps in its absorption into the body.
