Punjikasthala was a attendant of Lord Shiva and Devi Parvathi... Once a huge lightning striked and Punjikasthala got scared and she ran into the arms of Lord Shiva.Seeing this Parvathi got angry and cursed her to be born as Monkey....

Lord Shiva said.."Devi she dint mean this..She was just scared... Let her be born as vanara (monkey),she will give birth to a son in her monkey form who will be a manifestation Myself (Shiva himself)"

Later Punjikasthala borns as a Vanara, and marries King Kesari.. The couple pray to Lord shiva, to beget Lord shiva as there child.... And thus Anjaneya(Anjana devi putra) was born with Shiva's amsha.... 

One more version:
        Why Hanuman is known as Vayu Putra..

Dasharatha Raja was doing a Putrakamesti Yagna(Pooja to have children.) As a result, he received some sacred pudding, to be shared by his three wives, leading to the births of Lord Rama, Lakshmana, Bharata and Shatrughna. By divine ordinance, a kite snatched a fragment of that pudding, and dropped it while flying over the forest where Anjana was engaged in worship.

Vayu, the Hindu deity of the wind, delivered the falling pudding to the outstretched hands of Anjana, who consumed it. Hanuman was born to her as a result.
Because of Vayu Deva's part in handing over the pudding he is called Vayu putra....
