"whole chicken wings, tips removed, separated at the joint"
"salt, to taste"
"freshly ground white pepper, to taste"
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Combine the oil, garlic, and ginger in a 10-inch, ovenproof sauté pan and cook over medium heat for 3 minutes, flipping the garlic about halfway through. Discard the garlic, flip the ginger pieces, and cook for 3 more minutes.
Meanwhile, place the wings in a bowl and season with the turmeric and coriander. Toss the wings and rub the spices in to make sure the wings are evenly coated.
Discard the ginger, increase heat to high, and add the wings to the pan. Arrange them all in a single layer. Season with salt and freshly ground white pepper, to taste. Cook for 5 minutes, flipping halfway through and seasoning the other side with additional salt and pepper, to taste.
Transfer the pan to the oven or place on a baking sheet and bake for 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.
