Air Fryer Chicken 65

1.5 lbs boneless chicken thighs skinless

For the Marinade:
1/2 cup thick yogurt
7-8 curry leaves chopped
1 tablespoon ginger garlic paste
1 teaspoon cumin powder
2 tablespoons Kashmiri chili powder mild
1 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 teaspoon salt
1 tablespoon oil avocado

Before air frying:
3 tablespoons rice flour

For coating the mesh tray (Air fryer):
1 teaspoon avocado oil

Tempering:
1 tablespoon avocado oil
7-8 curry leaves
3-4 Indian or Thai green chilies (Bird’s eye) cut lengthwise
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon chaat masala

For serving:
3-4 lemon wedges
2 tablespoon finely chopped cilantro / coriander leaves for garnishing

Chop the chicken into 2-inch pieces.

Combine all the ingredients under the marinade section in a mixing bowl.

Add the chicken pieces to the marinade and coat them one at a time so that each piece is evenly marinated.

Let the chicken sit in the marinade for about 30 minutes.

After it has been marinated, add rice flour to the chicken marinade and coat it well.

Completely coat the air frying basket with oil before placing it over the trivet. Set the temperature to 400°F (200°C )and preheat the air fryer for 3 minutes.

Place the chicken pieces on the air frying basket in a single layer making sure not to overcrowd them – you’ll have to do it in two batches.

Allow the chicken pieces to cook for 7 minutes.

Once the cooking cycle is complete, Flip the chicken pieces and cook for another 7 minutes. Check the internal temperature to make sure it is over 165 degrees F.

Transfer the chicken to a plate and repeat the process with the next batch of chicken.

Finish the dish with tempering:

To temper, heat oil in a pan and once hot, add garlic, curry leaves, and green chilies. Saute it for about 10-20 seconds and then add the cooked chicken. Sprinkle pepper powder and chaat masala over the chicken. Mix well and take it off heat.

Garnish with finely chopped cilantro and serve immediately with a side of lemon wedges.

Notes:
Use any oil with a high smoke point. I prefer avocado oil.

I prefer boneless chicken thighs for this recipe because the end result is moist and succulent. You can always use boneless chicken breasts.

Make sure to chop the chicken thighs into equal-sized pieces for even cooking.

Prep ahead instructions:

If you are planning to make chicken 65 for entertaining, marinate the chicken overnight but make the dish the day of the party for the best-tasting chicken. You can refrigerate them but they do tend to become dry.

Air Fryer Okra (Kurkuri Bhindi)

1/2 pound okra / bhindi

1/4 teaspoon turmeric
1 tablespoon coriander powder
1 teaspoon red chili flakes
1/2 teaspoon mango powder
1 teaspoon salt
2 tablespoons chickpea flour / besan
1 tsp chaat masala
2 tbsp oil

Wash and towel-dry the okra completely before you use them.

Cut the okra length wise into sticks. Traditionally okra is de-seeded as it’s makes the frying easier however we don’t have to deseed the okra since we are using the air frier. It’s optional.

In a mixing bowl, toss in the okra and all the above ingredients and mix well coating the okra with the flour and spices.

Air Fryer Recipe:

Preheat the airfrier at 360 degrees F. Place the okra in the air frier mesh evenly without over crowding and cook for about 10 minutes. You can flip the okras after about 5 minutes so they can evenly cook.

Based on your air frier you could get different results but typically air fried okra should be ready in 10 minutes. if you like it even more crispy, you could slide the basket in for a minute or two more but keep a close eye after 10 minutes.

Serve it warm as a snack or side. Drizzle some freshly squeezed lemon juice to tantalize your taste buds.

Oven Recipe:

Pre-heat oven for 400 degrees.

Line the baking tray with parchment paper.

Evenly layer the okra sticks in a baking tray in a single layer.

Bake for 20 minutes

Prep & Cook: Wash and dry the baby potatoes. Cut them in half. Toss them with olive oil and salt. Place them cut side down in the fryer basket. Cook them in at 400°F for about 10-12 minutes.

Check for doneness: The potatoes should be about 80% done by then. Check with a knife, it should go through the potato with a little resistance. If potatoes aren’t there yet, put them back in for another 3-5 minutes.

Season: After that, remove them from the basket into a mixing bowl. Add a tablespoon of avocado or olive oil and toss to coat the potatoes. Then, toss them with all the spices. Mixing them in a bowl allows the seasoning to stick to the potatoes.

Crisp: Spread them out evenly in the fryer basket. Cook at 400°F for 5 minutes. Remove the basket and give it a good shake, put it back and cook for another 5 mins, or until potatoes form a golden crisp crust.

Garnish: Garnish with lemon juice and chopped cilantro. Cool 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

Chicken (or Paneer) Karahi

2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons) Oil
2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons) Ginger,minced
1 tablespoon (1 tablespoon) Jalapeño Peppers, or serrano pepper, minced
1.5 pounds (680.39 g) boneless skinless chicken thighs, cut into 4 pieces each
1 cup (149 g) tomatoes, chopped
2 teaspoons (2 teaspoons) Turmeric
1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) Garam Masala
1/2-1 teaspoon (0.5 teaspoon) Cayenne Pepper or to taste

For Finishing
1/4 cup (4 g) Cilantro, chopped
2 tablespoons (2 tablespoons) Lemon Juice
1 teaspoon (1 teaspoon) Garam Masala

Heat a nonstick 10-inch pan and when it’s hot, add in the oil. You want a wide saucepan.

To the hot oil, add the ginger and jalapenos.

Add the chicken and let the chicken sear on one side and then flip over.

Add in tomatoes and stir well.

Add all the spices and stir.

Now, you’re going to cook this lovely, fragrant mixture until it is all well cooked. Do NOT add water. Do NOT cover.

Stir once in a while. This is the point you’ll be happy you listened to me and used a nonstick pan.

As the chicken and tomatoes cook, you’re going to see the water evaporating, the tomatoes caramelizing and mushing up–and most importantly, the oil separating. Some of this oil is what you added, some of it is what’s being rendered out of any fat that was on the chicken.

By the time the water has mostly or completely evaporated, your chicken will be done. Verify this with a meat thermometer so it is at 165F.

Add all the finishing ingredients and have at it!
