Here is what is in the marinade for Air Fryer Mughlai Kebab – Kalmi Tangdi Kebab –

Greek yogurt: The Greek yogurt yogurt tenderizes the chicken for a very nice, creamy, tender, juicy bite.


Lemon juice: The acid from the lemon also helps break down the tough fibers of the chicken as it adds flavor to each bite.

Other ingredients – Ginger garlic paste, cashew nuts, ground turmeric, ground cumin, garam masala, red chili powder, ground black pepper, nutmeg powder, salt, oil, and heavy whipping cream.

How do I make this Air Fryer Mughlai Kebab – Kalmi Tangdi Kebab recipe?

Prep – First, grind the cashew nuts in a blender with 2 tbsp water.

Second, peel and chop the chicken skin if there is any. Cut 2 to 4 slits on the drumsticks about 2 to 3 inches wide and deep.

Third, in a mixing bowl, add in the greek yogurt, 2 tbsp oil, ginger garlic paste, lemon juice, ground cashew nuts, ground turmeric, ground cumin, garam masala, red chili powder, black pepper, nutmeg, salt, and heavy whipping cream. Mix  well. Furthermore add in the chicken and mix well.

Cover the marinated chicken bowl with a lid. Marinate the chicken for 30 minutes to an hour. Additionally, you can also marinate it overnight in the refrigerator.

Air Fry –

When you are ready to cook, grease the air fryer basket with oil. I grease mine by rubbing, brushing, or spraying, a little bit of oil on the bottom grate. Then, follow your air fryer directions for preheating to 350°F for 5 minutes. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the chicken in a single layer. 

Cook the chicken at 360°F for 10 minutes. Turn and cook for another 10 minutes. Finally increase the temperature to 370°F and cook for another 5 to 10 minutes until the skin is brown and crisp. Check after the final 5 minute mark (25 minutes) and turn it around for the last 5 minutes.

Finally, Using a  meat thermometer ensure that the chicken has reached an internal temperature of 165ºF before serving.
