The love for street food is one thing which is truly unparalleled. Street food lovers can't do without some delicious tangy chaat or even a batch of piping hot momos. Although the pandemic may have brought a halt to these guilty street-style indulgences, there's no reason why they cannot be made at home! Fried momos is one such dish which is often found in the small nooks and crannies of Delhi. The dish has a major fan following and, guess what, it can be easily recreated at home with the help of an air fryer.

However, Fried momos gives a unique and interesting spin to this recipe. Rather than being steamed, the dumplings are fried in oil and then served with fresh and spicy tomato garlic chutney. But why indulge in excessive oil when you can recreate the same recipe with the help of minimal oil and an air fryer?
