Airfried Tandoori Chicken In The Philips Airfryer | Product Review

"How to use Philips Airfryer to pamper yourself with an oil free Tandoori Chicken?" If you have been following me on Instagram you must be aware of my fondness for fried food items. I love Bhajis / Vadas / Potato fries, though in controlled portions. So when I get my hands on Philips Airfryer I was thanking God for giving me an early Diwali gift ! Every year during Diwali I get tempted to buy a new kitchen appliance and this year I'm proud owner of Philips Airfryer. The wonderful fryer has given me the freedom to indulge in all kinds of guilt free snacks. After using it I genuinely found Philips Airfryer to be a healthy alternative tool to avoid deep fried cooking. 

For those of us who are used to cooking/heating food in Microwave, I would like to share a few unique points that sets apart Philips Airfryer from Microwaves. Firstly, the airfryer uses very hot air  circulated around the food whereas the microwave emits electromagnetic waves using magnetron to heat up the molecules of the food. So instead of relying on radiation the airfryer uses the hot air to bring out the oil from within the food from it's innermost core. This eliminates the need to add any kind of oil whereas in microwave ovens while cooking you need to add oil even if it's a little . So if you are longing for crispy and dry foods like fried fish, chicken, potatoes, paneer, vegetables, mini pizzas,fritters etc. without having that guilty feeling of having oil with it, look no further. The answer for you to indulge in your favourite fried food sans oil has arrived in form of Philips Airfryer. So they have definitely made things better for foodies and non foodies across the world. Touche. 

3 Chicken leg quarters 
1/2 Hung curd
2 tbsp Ginger-Garlic paste
1 tbsp Lemon juice
1 tbsp Tandoori Chicken Masala powder
1 tbsp Kashmiri red chili powder
1 tsp Onion powder
1 tsp Garam Masala powder

Make incisions on the chicken pieces as this helps the marinade to go all the way inside the chicken. Put all the above ingredients in a big mixing bowl and rub the marinade thoroughly. Cover the bowl and refrigerate it for overnight. Once I placed two pieces of marinated chicken in the basket and turned on the timer, the arifryer began to heat up from inside and I could well hear the sound of air getting evenly circulated.

 After 20 minutes, I opened the basket and turned over the pieces and cooked it for another 10 minutes just to be doubly sure that the chicken pieces do not get stuck with each other. I didn't apply any oil with brush over chicken pieces but was pleasantly surprised with the juicy, perfectly cooked chicken. 

The reddish look was achieved by Kashmiri red chili powder and it had the tinge of barbecue spots here and there. Well you have got to try it yourself to believe how delicious and easy it is to make OIL FREE recipes in Philips Airfryer!
