World On A Plate Chennai 2019 | Chicken Tikki On Philips Air Fryer

World On A Plate is India's first International Food Festival. One of the most exciting platforms featuring the most influential celebrity chefs from the culinary world. First time in Chennai, VR mall introduced globally acclaimed World On A Plate (popularly known as WOAP) on 10th November. Celebrity chef, model and restauranteur Sarah Todd, Vicky Ratnani and Saransh Goila kept the audience engaged with their MasterChef classes
And the food enthusiasts of Chennai came from all corners to attend a one-day culinary festival. The day was dazzled by MasterChefs, stalwarts from the food industry, food brands, restaurants, food bloggers, food critics, journalists, and social influencers. The food pops by the city's famous restaurants and patisseries offered a wide range of cuisine for the foodies. I was elated to see Goila's Butter Chicken stall by famous Chef Saransh Goila. I had to try the most popular Mumbai based restaurant 'Goila Butter Chicken' and it was delicious. Philips Kitchen Appliances was the title sponsor for the World On A Plate
Weekender event. Chef Saransh used the star kitchen gadget which hogged the limelight in his Masterclass -'Philips Air Fryer'. He made Chakli in Philips Air Fryer to make it super healthy and crispy.  

Inspired by him I made Chicken Tikki in Air Fryer and it came out excellent! Today's recipe is Chicken Tikki without deep frying but still excellent taste. These Chicken Tikkis can be best enjoyed with mint chutney and salad. Tikkis or Patties in India has many varieties like Aloo tikkis, Paneer tikkis, Oats tikkis and many more. So basically 'Tikki' means a small cutlet which are actually deep-fried spicy patties which are extremely popular in India. My earlier recipe which was made in Philips air fryer was Tandoori chicken.


300 gms Chicken Keema (minced chicken)
1 big red onion, chopped
2 Green chilies, finely chopped
2 tbsp chopped Cilantro
1 tsp finely chopped Ginger
2 tsp finely chopped Garlic
1 Egg
1/4 Besan (chickpea flour)
1/2 cup Breadcrumbs 
1 tsp Garam masala
1 tsp Chaat masala
1/2 tsp Red chili powder (I used Kashmiri red chili powder as I add green chilies)
Salt to taste
1 tbsp + Oil for brushing over the tikkis


1. I wasn't happy with the keema texture as I wanted fine grains of meat, so I used a food processor to ground fine. With the keema mixture, I added an egg and blend in the food processor just to mix both thoroughly. 

Added eggs

2. Take out the mixture in a wide plate and add chopped onions, green chilies, cilantro leaves, and all the dry spices along with besan and breadcrumbs.

3. Gently mix together everything with your fingertips. Taste and adjust the seasoning.

4. Make lemon sized balls of the chicken mixture and shape into round flatten tiikis. 

5. Pre-hear Philips Air fryer to 350 Degrees Fahrenheit for 3-4 minutes. And brush some oil on both sides of each tikki.

6. Place a sheet of aluminum foil on the air fryer basket (this will ensure that your food won't stick) and arrange 4 tikkis at a time. 

7. Bake the first batch of tikkis in air fryer for 18 minutes at 200 degrees and don't forget to flip it once in between after 10 minutes fo cooking. This step is done to make sure the food is cooked evenly from both sides. 

8. Open the air fryer basket to check if the tikkis are golden in colour and crisp. Take out the first batch and follow the same with the remaining tikkis . Serve the tikkis with mint chutney and onion rings.
