Crispy Curry Wings with Cuke Cilantro Sauce

2 pounds chicken wings
4 tablespoons curry powder
4 tablespoons Major Grey's chutney, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
3/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne
1 teaspoon soy sauce
1 cup plain yogurt
a 5-inch length of seedless cucumber, seeded and chopped fine (about 1 cup)
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro sprigs for garnish
1 teaspoon fresh lemon juice

Cut off the wing tips, reserving them for another use such as stock if desired, and halve the wings at the joint. In a bowl stir together the curry powder, 2 tablespoons of the chutney, the lemon juice, the salt, and the cayenne, add the wings, and toss them to coat well. Let the wings marinate, covered and chilled , for at least 4 hours or overnight.

In a small bowl stir together the remaining 2 tablespoons chutney and the soy sauce. Arrange the wings, marinade discarded, skin side up, on the oiled rack of a broiler pan and bake them in a preheated 475 degree oven for 25 minutes. Brush the wings with the soy-sauce mixture and broil them under a preheated broiler about 4 inches from the heat for 1 to 2 minutes, or until they are crisp.

In a small bowl stir together the yogurt, the cucumber, the minced coriander, the juice, and salt to taste.
Transfer the wings to a platter, garnish them with the coriander sprigs, and serve them warm or at room temperature with the sauce.
