PRO TIPS FOR BEST AIR FRY PANI PURI

It is important to preheat the air fryer first time and after every 2 batches of air frying for best results.

Puri needs to be air fried at a high temperature, if the temperature is not maintained the puri does not puff up well.

I have tried air frying at 360 degrees Fahrenheit and 370 degrees Fahrenheit. Both temperatures gave good results.

Air fry the pani puri in batches. Do not overcrowd the air fryer basket. Arrange the pani puri in a single layer. I could fit around 15-16 puri in my 5 quart Gourmia air fryer.

Applying oil to the pani puri is optional. I made few batches with and few without oil. The only visual difference was that the ones with oil, had a nice shine and were slightly dark in color, than the ones without oil. As per taste, not much noticeable difference.
