  • Dilute cornstarch into cold water before adding to boiling mixture, beating well.
  • Stir in a few drops of red food coloring and a few fennel seeds.
  • Leave to simmer for 5 to 8 minutes, until thickened.

Tip(s):

  • To shape chicken wings into drumsticks, cut off the wing tips then halve wings at joint.
  • Separate the ‘drumstick’ or first-joint pieces, the thick ones, from the second-joint pieces.
  • Beginning at the narrower end of each ‘drumstick’, cut the tendons using a sharp knife.
  • Holding the exposed end of the bone with a kitchen towel, scrape the skin and meat down the bone as far as possible toward the thicker end to make a plump drumstick shape.
  • Cut through the cartilage at one end of each second-joint piece; separating the bones, scrape the skin and meat down the larger bone to make a plump drumstick shape then pull out and discard the smaller bone.
