These Simple Grilled Tamarind Chicken Wings Are Almost Too Good to Share

I have vivid memories of eating cumin-and-chile-spiced tamarind pods by the fistful at my grandparents’ house in Madhya Pradesh in the summer. Letting the wings hang out in the marinade for 15 minutes keeps them juicy after grilling and deeply flavorful all the way through.

Then cook the wings on the cooler side, keeping the lid closed for the first 30 minutes, and basting halfway through. While the wings cook, slice some raw onion super thin, then shock in cold water to get it crunchy and mellow in flavor.
