It’s time to trick your sambosas and fries.
Major confession time – we are HUGE fried food addicts. Put us in front of some hot fries, a plate of sambosas, fried chicken and you’ll make us weak at the knees.
So we got an air fryer, a unique kitchen gadget that enables you to indulge your taste buds without wrecking your diet. The Air-fryer combines fast circulating hot air with a grill that cooks the food with a little bit of oil.
Just a little oil and you are good to go.
Good Ol’ Fries
Best tasting fries with just a teaspoon of oil? Oh boy, that’s a very lofty claim to make! So yes, I was very skeptical about the results… That is, until I actually made it.
They turned out to be delicious and crispy. Enjoy!
Tip: Store-bought frozen fries can be thrown straight into the Airfryer or you can make them from scratch.
DR tip: Add a little spice and gorgeous color to the fries! Toss ‘em in a delicious spicy mix: Paprika, garlic powder, cornstarch, salt and pepper.
Spicy Chicken Drumsticks
These drumsticks were done in 30 minutes, from start to finish.
I was extremely impressed with how evenly the chicken was fried, and how effortless it was.
Tip: Marinate the chicken before hand.
DR tip: Dunk these in guacamole for more flavor.
Sambosas and Spring Rolls
These are supposedly a must on every iftar table. But keeping the oil control in mind, we decided to go for the air-fried goodness.
They are quick and crispy without all the fat from oil. This low-fat snack is sure to satisfy your craving.
Perk these up with some garlic, spices and just a little brushing of oil. The fingers turn out crispy and can be enjoyed with your favorite dip.
Quick Mixed Vegetable Tempura
This no-fuss treat is great for nibbles and is a delicious twist (fake, ahem!) on traditional tempura.
Use whatever seasonal vegetables you have. I have tried it with zucchini, carrots, bean and cauliflower and it turned out to be a great tummy pleaser.
Tip: Just flip over once if needed.
