Put the salt and sugar into a pan with 500ml of water and heat gently until both
are dissolved. Pour in 500ml of cold water and mix again. Cool, then add the chicken wings and leave overnight in the fridge.
Strain the chicken wings and pat dry really well with kitchen paper. Heat the oven to 110C/fan 90C/gas ¼.
Put the wings into a deep roasting tin and top up with enough vegetable oil to cover. Cook in the oven for 40 minutes. Leave to cool in the oil.
To make the sauce, heat the vegetable oil in a pan, crush the ginger cubes with the side of a knife and fry for 3-4 minutes until golden. Add the garlic and cook for 1 minute. Tip in the remaining sauce ingredients and cook gently for 10-15 minutes until the sauce is thick enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Strain the wings and dry with kitchen paper. Put the milk and cornflour in two bowls and dip the wings in the milk then the cornflour.
Fill a pan no more than 1/3 full with vegetable oil and heat to 190C or until a cube of bread browns in 25 seconds. Fry in batches for 4-5 minutes until golden brown, then drain on kitchen paper. Keep warm in a low oven while you fry the rest. Serve coated in the sanbei sauce, with caviar on top, if you like.
