Want to buy an Air Fryer, however do not want to spend BIG Bucks? Checkout the list we have curated for 10 of them you can easily buy.

Air Fryers are a must have gadget in modern kitchen. Internet is full of stories with people changing their lifestyles and using this little gadget in more ways than we can imagine.

So we went on internet and looked up what is the cheapest Air Fryer we can buy online in India – basically that would ship to every part of the country, well almost. However cheap should not mean bad. Here is a list of the ones that we found were not so expensive but would also get the job done.

The list is restricted to products available on Amazon India, just to make sure you can order one if you fancy one.

Cheap and Good Air Fryer with Freebies
  • Krutan Air Fryer – 2.5L

    Though a name that we have not heard, however a look at the reviews did not raise any alarm. The only picture on amazon gives feel of a solid and simple product. Looking up for Krutan on google tells us that they might be Banaglore based importers. Priced under Rs.3000 this is the cheapest one the list, and given its sold on Amazon, there is always the option to return if you don’t like.

Next up in our list are the BrightFlame twins. Listed at the same price, they both seem to have decent enough reviews from their buyers and seller seems to be fairly responsive.

Latest Prices and More Product Details

This is the 2.8L version which seems to sell more than 3.2L one.
  • Kenstar OF-KOS13BJ2-CFK 1350-Watt Oxy Fryer

    Next up on our list is probably the first pan-india recognizable brand. Though this one by no means seems to be a hot seller online, however Kenstar does have a strong offline presence and network. If you are looking for something for 5k types, then this can be a viable option.

Latest Price and Product Details

This is where things start to get serious. We have crossed the 5.5K mark with this American Micronic airfryer which for some reason says ‘imported’ in its product title on Amazon. Do research about the same and warranty if you decide to go on for this one. However the reviews seem to be all good with several satisfied customers and a responsive seller.

Latest Price and Product Details

 

Just around Rs.5.5k, this is where things get serious.
  • Concord PBT Air Fryer, 2.8 Litre

    Here is not so expensive air fryer from an unknown brand, however some strong supporting reviews. Available for under Rs.5.5K this one lists as Digital Touch Screen as its USP. A customer does mention about the high quality and premium finish of the Screen Panel.

Digital Touch Screen on Air Fryer. We are in 2017 after all.
  • Kenstar Aster 1500-Watt Oxy Fryer

    Oxy Fryer is Kenstar’s way of referring to their Air fryers. This is where you move on from league of cheap air fryers and get into the league of serious products. This 3 liters device comes in Cherry Color, which is an interesting option if you are bored of Black and White options so far.

    Latest Prices and Product Details

    Kenstar’s 3 L, 1500 W Air-fryer, adding some color to our list.
  • Havells Prolife Digi 1230-Watt Air Fryer

    The second entry to the list with a Digital Touch Screen, this one marks the entry of Havells on this list. Priced around 9k, this is one of the first Air Fryers with a 4 Litre Capacity on the list. Or that is what the seller is answering other customers and those who are asking questions. And if it is actually 4L and this probably is the highest capacity Air Fryer on this list. Plus its Havells. Mind it.

Latest Prices and Product Details

The only 4L capacity on the list.
  • Philips Viva Collection HD9220 Air Fryer

    If we have to say one air-fryer that seems to be absolutely killing it then it has to be this one by ever so reliable Philips. Priced at a shade above 9k, this one is the BESTSELLING Air Fryer on Amazon with over a 1000 reviews and average rating of 4.3 .

    The agenda of this list was to find the cheaper options for those who are looking for Air fryers, that is why this one by Philips seem to be the most expensive, however this is the standard average kitchen model. Though not sure how much value it would offer over the cheaper alternatives, however this device with 2.2l capacity definitely is the safest investment on the entire list.

Best Seller Air Fryer on Amazon in India

Though this should culminate the list in terms of products, however here is a very interesting Air Fryer we spotted during our research and apparently this is the 2.0 version of the product, which means they do have a cool looking and much cheaper 1.0 version as well. Do check it out.

Most Stylish Air fryer on our list

There are a few more options and unless you are really finicky about your research or looking for anything specific in particular you can very well ignore them as well.

Though Air Fryer comes with a certain promise but lets not forget there are severe limitation to the cooking style and despite all the marketing hype no they are not a substitute for all your deep frying needs. However as a gadget it does have a certain value and if you are consciously headed to a healthier lifestyle, this can be a worthy investment in your kitchen.

Lauki Paneer – Healthy, Easy & Oil Free Recipe by Sarika Behal

This is has to be one of the most popular and tried recipe on our forums. When I saw multiple posts about how tasty this dish is, I couldn’t help but wonder how can lauki taste so nice in a gravy.

Finally I tried my hands on the very easy, healthy and delicious Lauki Paneer recipe by Sarika.
This is has to be one of the most popular and tried recipe on our forums. When I saw multiple posts about how tasty this dish is, I couldn’t help but wonder how can lauki taste so nice in a gravy.

The results were more than satisfying and everyone kept raving about the lovely creamy texture of the gravy and when I disclosed the fact that this has been made minus the butter, cream and ghee, people were awestruck.Also this can be a great replacement for the loaded Shahi Paneer.

This is a great recipe for fussy eaters who hate the sight of the lauki/ghiya/bottle gourd and the people who love to watch their calories.
Recipe: Serves 2

 

Ingredients :
Olive Oil : 2 Tbsps {I know the title says oil free but only 2 tbsp is almost like nothing ;)}
Paneer : 150 Gms
Garlic : 3 – 4 cloves chopped
Ginger : An inch chopped
Green Chillies : As much as you like but one is good if you want mildly hot
Onion : 1 medium size chopped
Capsicum : 1 medium size
Lauki/Bottle Gourd : 1 small size chopped
Milk : 1/2 Cup
Cardamom : 2, pods removed and seeds crushed
Cinnamon : a little more than a pinch
Salt : As per taste

Red Chilli Powder : as per taste

Coriander Powder :  2 Tbsp
Garam Masala : 1 Tsp
Jeera : 1 Tsp
Kasuri (Dried) Meethi Leaves : 1 Tbsp
Coriander Leaves for garnishing

 

 
Method :
1. Boil lauki / bottle gourd in minimal water. Since we need very less water and don’t want to lose the nutrient packed stock, so keep it as little as possible. Add a bit of salt while boiling.
2. Lightly roast capsicum on gas stove and keep aside.

3. In a wok, add olive oil  and jeera. When jeera sputters, add  green chilies, ginger and garlic. When garlic turns brown, lower the flame and add onions. Saute onions till they become light brown. Don’t
caramelize them.

4. Now add all the dry masalas except for garam masala and kasuri meethi.

 5. Add a little lauki stock to prevent masalas from sticking in the wok.

6. Now add the boiled lauki and chopped roasted capsicum. Add some lauki stock and cook for 3-4 minutes till all the masala comes together.

7. Switch off the flame and let it cool down for few minutes.

8. Puree this masala along with milk in a mixer/blender. Blend on high speed till you get a sauce like consistency.

9. Put this sauce back in wok and cook for 5 mins on low flame. Now add paneer cubes,
garam masala and kasuri methi. Cook for couple of more minutes.

10. Garnish it with coriander leaves and serve hot.
