This recipe is a family favorite. Your family is going to love this recipe! Honestly, I have never met a picky eater who didn’t like these chicken legs.

Ingredients needed for Air Fryer Andhra Chicken – Spicy Chicken in Air Fryer –


Chicken drumsticks, onion, garlic cloves, curry leaves, red chili powder, ground coriander, salt, black pepper, tamarind paste, garam masala, and ginger garlic paste.

How do I make this recipe?

First in a blender grind the onions, curry leaves, garlic cloves, red chili powder, ground coriander, salt, pepper, tamarind paste, garam masala, ginger garlic paste.  Process until completely smooth.

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.

Further, rub the marinade on the chicken really well and let it sit for 30 minutes to overnight in a refrigerator covered. I normally keep the marinade on for 30 minutes.

When you are ready to cook, grease the Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart 6-in 1 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. When it’s preheated, working in batches, place the chicken in a single layer. 

Cook the chicken at 360°F for 20 minutes. Turn and cook midway. 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, depending on the air fryer it may be done in 5 minutes.

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

Notes

I used the Instant Vortex Plus 6 Quart 6-in 1 Air Fryer
Specifically for Vortex Air Fryer, Grease the air fryer basket with cooking spray or oil.
Air fry at 360°F for 20 minutes. When display reads add food, add the chicken and place tray in the center position.
When display reads turn food, flip the chicken drumsticks.
When done, Air fry at 370°F and cook for another 5 minutes. When display indicates turn food do nothing.
Serve immediately when done.
On a scale of 1 to 5, I would place this dish at 3.5 in terms of spice level.
