Our favourite finger food spiked with the magic of spice

There are days when we yearn for that relentless kick of heat in our meals. We're talking peppers, chilli flakes and a bevy of spices to add that tingle to our tastebuds. The goal is to achieve a slow burn coupled with tantalising flavours. This weekend, skip the usual barbecue marinade and try your hand at this recipe for Baharat chicken wings — a signature dish from Fat Prince. Our word of advice? Have a glass of milk at hand, just in case things get too hot to handle.
