I love having meatballs on them on and also to add to just about any sauce. These are Desi Turkey Meatballs made in the air fryer cutting down on half the time that it usually takes in an oven! I love how crispy these are on the outside yet nice and soft still on the inside! So much flavor packed into a little ball!

  • Prep: 5 mins
  • Cook: 15 mins
  • Yields: ~24 meatballs


1 lb ground turkey

1 medium onion (diced)

2 garlic cloves (minced)

1/2 cup Cilantro (chopped)

1 tsp cumin powder

1 tsp coriander powder

1 tsp salt

1 tsp black pepper

1 tsp oregeno

1 tsp chili powder

1/2 tsp red chili flakes

1 egg


1Preheat air fryer to 400 degrees.

2Mix all your ingredients together until well mixed and there are no longer any big clumps of turkey.

3Spray the drawer of the air fryer. Create 1/8 cup (3 tbsps) balls of the mixture and place into your air fryer. Do not overcrowd the air fryer. You will probably need to make this in two batches.

4Air fry for 10-12 minutes making sure to toss about half way through. Let cool and enjoy!
