Crispy roasted potato curry is loved by many of us. Make these delicious roasted baby potatoes in air fryer easily and with minimum oil.
Potatoes are favourites of many. Especially if the potatoes are roasted golden brown and crispy. But then the factor of too much oil does deter many from roasting it in slow fires. These are definitely tastier. However, I would like to make a small trade-off for the traditional taste with our health. On this pursuit of healthier options, I opt to make these roasted baby potatoes in air fryer.
An air fryer is an important gadget in my kitchen. Yes, I use many gadgets. These help in multitasking and eases the process of cooking so that I can invest my time elsewhere. In south Indian cooking, we generally roast two of the roots. These roasted vegetables are served as a dry curry along with sambar and rasam. Potatoes and Arbi or colocasia are mostly preferred when roasted.
An air fryer is a gadget which uses hot air to circulate and cook food. The food that we cook at this very high temperature and hot air will be crispy texture on the outside. This crispy texture compares to a fried one to a certain extent. To get a more crispy texture we can increase the amount of oil while cooking. Hence roasting in an air fry is the best way to roast with minimum oil,
To get the roasted curry we usually pan roast the semi-cooked roots on slow fire. For a very crispy and golden outer crust, we tend to use more oil to roast the vegetables. To avoid this and get the nearly same effect we can air fry these vegetables as in these roasted baby potatoes in air fryer or Seppankizhangu roast in an air fryer. On the other hand, we can roast these vegetables in an oven too like this Oven-roasted Arbi.
