"This recipe uses the magic of hawaij spice, crushed potato chips, and air frying to make ground turkey you are excited to eat. Hawaij is Yemini/Israeli/Arabic and is super-friendly to turkey. You can make it yourself: it is just cumin, cardamom (pods are much better than ground), turmeric, pepper, coriander, cloves (google for ratios). The wavy potato chips and air frying gives much-needed texture so they can be eaten alone, instead of pouring on gravy. My air-fryer is a Foodi flip-up oven that can cook a dozen meatballs at a time."
