Air Fried Turmeric Chicken Wings with Curry Leaves

I know that about 2 months ago, I got the fancy kitchen gadget called Thermomix. Not long after that, I bought another kitchen gadget...Ooops!!

Please welcome my latest addition to my kitchen family, the Phillips Avance Collection Airfryer XL. Eating healthier and frying without oil. That got my interest!!! I must say, I've been using both my gadgets a lot and I kept telling my hubs that they're the best things that I've ever bought last year for my kitchen!!!

I was trying out my own recipe last week with the Airfryer, where I would traditionally have to deep fried it with lots and lots of oil. This time, with the Airfryer, I did not have to use a single drop of oil. Did I say that I am super impressed?

You can try this recipe with either chicken wings or drumsticks, but I personally prefer the wings. My only tip is, do note that the curry leaves will fly and might get stuck at the top grill. Make sure you get them out when you've finished cooking, otherwise they will get burnt when you use the Airfryer next time!
