Bandit Chicken Wings 土匪雞翼

From a TV food show, I learnt that this 土匪雞翼 (direct translate become Bandit Chicken Wings) is very famous now in Hong Kong. This roasted chicken wings using one of the most important ingredient in the recipe is Cumin powder 孜然粉.
I don't know why this roasted chicken wings named as Bandit chicken wings , but according to here, those bandit robbers not only robbed  luxury items but also household spices. The local people who stayed a few miles away can smell the nice aroma of the wings when the bandit robbers used the spices to roast chicken wings.  Thus they would know those bandits were not far from them and they could take precautions of those bandits.

In fact, this chicken wings not only easy to prepare and yet the tasted so good with very nice cumin aroma..So I only use very minimum seasonings as I want strong cumin aroma.
