I’ve had my air fryer for almost two years now, and hands down my favorite thing to make in it is wings (runner ups are  frozen samosa and my chimichangas). These Air Fryer Wings are pretty fuss free and make for a delicious lunch, or dinner and they’re also very toddler friendly (Shaan loves wings!).  I  have this Philips Air Fryer and it’s held up great over the last few years. I  also have friends who have the Instant Pot Vortex Air Fryer and love it too! These

Some delicious sides to enjoy with these wings:

Pav Bhaji Pasta

Cajun Spaghetti

Hakka Noodles

Masala Fried Rice

Cilantro Jalapeno Sauce

Air Fryer Wings

Indian Inspired Masala Wings made in under 30 minutes in the air fryer! Flavors like turmeric, ginger, and lime make these extra special!
Prep Time 15 mins
Cook Time 16 mins


  • 1.5 lb chicken wings (preferably fresh not frozen)
  • 2 tsp minced ginger
  • 2 tbsp minced garlic
  • 2 tsp cumin powder
  • 2 tsp coriander-cumin powder (Dhana Jiru)
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1.5 tsp turmeric powder
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 2 tbsp finely chopped cilantro for garnish
  • few cracks black pepper
  • 2 tbsp oil


  • In a large bowl mix the oil and all of the spices (leave out the wings, and cilantro). Mix well.
  • Add the wings to the bowl and make sure each wing is evenly coated. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or longer, ideally overnight.
  • Preheat the air fryer to 360 degrees. Use tongs to place the wings inside the air fryer, leaving about 1/2 inch space between each wing. Cook for 16-20 minutes (timing willd depend on your air fryer- mine cooks perfectly at 16 minutes). Check one chicken wing and if it is uncooked cook for few more minutes.
  • When wings are cooked, remove from air fryer, garnish with cilantro and serve hot!
