Air fryer Grilled Zucchini and Cheese Paneer

Air fryer Grilled Zucchini and Cheese Paneer

When it comes to grilling I always had to rely on the man of the house (my husband) to fire up the grill. And we only did seasonal grilling like fathers day and 4th of July. Every time we grilled we all enjoyed so much and I always thought there has to be a better way to grill more often until I discovered Ninza air fryer. This is the most used kitchen gadget in my house ever since. It has been almost an everyday thing now.
