Ever since several years back, when we stopped having steamboat for reunion, cooking each and every style of the favourite home cooked dish has become an almost yearly tradition since. And without fail, meatballs or ngoh hiang is a must have on the reunion table every year. I guess anything that’s deep fried will excite every kid and probably that explains for my penchant for such since I was a kid. Of course, we don’t get to enjoy the “luxury” of getting all sinful whole year round. Hence, we make sure that everyone gets to eat all that that’s loved during the reunion. So coming this reunion for CNY, has everyone started brainstorming for their dishes ?
It so happened that this year reunion falls on a weekday. Hence, those working adults might have some issues on preparing reunion dinner if they were to cook. I believe something simple and straightforward and which could cater to the entire household, including the kiddos, is a must.
So I decided to give the traditional meatballs a little twist and incorporate them into a chicken wing that has been deboned. And what you eventually get is a whole lot of meaty stuffs that’s so easy to devour and yet perfectly healthy too, because I have them air fried instead of deep frying them ! So feel free to devour as many as you can.
And most importantly, you can prepare this in advance and on the day of cooking itself, all it takes is a good 10 minutes with the air fryer and you will have all the guests “stealing the wings” way before reunion dinner officially commenced because they look and taste that irresistible. So you better ensure you prepare as much in advance coz you never know when a stock-out situation might just happen before the actual meal !!

My name is Joyce, author of Eat What Tonight. Spending time in the kitchen has been one of my greatest therapeutic passion thus far even though I couldn't do it on a more often basis than I wish I could. I do not prized myself as a great cook or baker, after all I am a one-woman show in the kitchen and blogging scene. Nevertheless, I hope this little space of mine can aspire anyone like myself to appreciate and enjoy the best of oneself's efforts in every single home made dish.
