     There are many snacks that you can prepare without deep frying at home by using Air Fryer. Some of these snacks include fries, chicken wings, eggrolls, puris(for panipuri), samosas, and even fryums. After making panipuri in my Gowise Air Fryer, I was feeling quite confident with the Airfryer and got thinking about fried foods that I well and truly love to eat. Who can resist pappadums or other fryums? And from then, I prepared many of the snacks made in the air fryer. 

       Can I fry papad/other Indian fryums in an air fryer? This is a big question asked by many people. Yes, absolutely. I made 3-4 batches of fryum in my air fryer and Voila! It came out just like my mom used to deep fry them. I sprayed these dried fryums with oil and air-fried them in batches of 3-4 for a couple of minutes each. They don’t expand as much as when fried in oil, but still, have the indulgent crunch that I adore. Plus, they now have a clean and non-greasy taste! Yummy!!!
