Description

Air fryer carrot fries are a easy and delicious way to include lots of carrots into your diet. They are quick, easy, healthy and  super tasty.


Ingredients

Scale
  • 1 lb Carrots ( around 4 carrots)
  • 1 to 1.5 tablespoon avocado or coconut oil
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/3 teaspoon cumin powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoon corn starch ( completely optional for extra crispiness, not used here)
  • chopped cilantro for garnishing
  • Grated parmesan for garnishing ( Optional, skip for vegan version)

Ingredients for Herbed Greek yogurt dip ( Optional)

  • 1/4 cup Greek yogurt
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon minced chives
  • 1 teaspoon minced cilantro
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice

Ingredients for Sriracha Greek Yogurt dip ( Optional )

  • 1/2 cup of Greek yogurt
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 2 teaspoon of sriracha sauce

Instructions

  • Start with cleaning, peeling, and cutting the carrots into 2 inches long and around 1/2 inch wide sticks.
  • Toss these in oil and the given seasonings until well combined. Note: You can add 1 to 2 tablespoons of corn starch too to get more crispiness but its not necessary.
  • Now Air fry these at 390F for around 12 to 14 mins while tossing once halfway through. Make sure to arrange carrots in the air fryer without touching each other for making perfect crispy carrot fries.
  • While the carrots are air frying, check out the dip ideas given below and make your preferred dip to serve the air-fried carrots with.
  • Once the carrots are air fried to your preferred crispiness, take them out and toss them with chopped cilantro and grated parmesan(optional, skip for vegan version) to serve immediately. At this point, if you feel like Carrot fries need more seasoning, feel free to add. Note: It is very important to serve these immediately to maintain the crispiness.

Recipes for dips for Airfryer carrots

  • Herbed Greek yogurt dip: Mix 1/4 cup greek yogurt, 1/4 cup sour cream, 1 tsp minced chives, 1 tsp minced cilantro, salt, and pepper to taste, and 1 tsp lemon juice in a bowl and serve.
  • Sriracha greek yogurt dip: Mix 1/2 cup of greek yogurt, 1 tsp lemon juice, salt, and pepper to taste, and 2 tsp of Sriracha sauce in a bowl and serve. 

How to make Carrot fries in an Oven

Follow the same recipe and arrange the fries on a baking sheet without touching each other. Bake at 400F for 20 to 25 mins or until fries are done. 

Notes

  • Do not cut carrots into too thin sticks. Carrots shrivel up as they get air-fried, so always cut them into slightly wider sticks than you think you need.
  • Final air frying time always depends on the thickness of your carrot fries and your air fryer as every air fryer is different. So always make sure to check them at 7 min mark to shake the basket and again at 12 min mark to see if they are done or need more time. 
  • Serve right out of the air fryer for perfectly air-fried carrot fries. These fries get softer as they cool.
