1 ½tablespoongarlic paste or 4-5 grated garlic cloves
1teaspoondried onion powder
¼teaspoonfresh ground black pepper
In a large mixing bowl, add all the ingredients together in a bowl. Using your hands or a spoon to mix well.
Using a scale, measure out 1.5 oz portions and place on a plate. This will make about 12 meatballs. If you don’t have a scale, visually divide the meatball mixture in half and then in half again. Use each of the halves to make about 3 meatballs. This will make sure there are 12 meatballs all about the same size.
Preheat your air fryer to 390 F. Once heated, lightly spray with oil spray so nothing sticks.
Add 6 meatballs in a single layer and lightly spray the tops with oil spray and cook for 8-9 minutes until 160 F internally and golden brown on top. No need to flip them.
Remove and allow to rest for 3 minutes before serving with pita, salad or with roasted vegetables and rice. Repeat with the remaining 6 meatballs until all meatballs are cooked.
If all 12 meatballs fit in a single layer easily, you can cook them all at once.
If your meatballs are bigger than 1.5 oz each, they may take longer to cook. The best way to check doneness is with a meat thermometer.
Store cooked meatballs in the fridge for up to three days.
Freeze raw or cooked meatballs on a sheet tray before placing in an airtight container for up to three months.
To cook frozen raw meatballs for 11-13 minutes or cooked meatballs for 7-8 minutes until 160 F internally.
