Air fryer French fries is seriously the best! You will love this Air fried potatoes recipe.

I’ve been making these five-star air-fried French fries for a while now and I’ll never make them any other way.  The key is to shake the air fryer basket frequently and not to overcrowd your basket.

What do You Need To Make Air-Fried French Fries

You will need two basic ingredients, well three if you count salt. 

  • Potatoes: I have always used Russet potatoes, but you can feel free to try a different kind if you’d like. 
  • Olive oil: Only 1 tablespoon will do!
  • Salt: For seasoning 🙂 

How to Make Air-Fried French Fries

  • PEAL & Cut: Peal your whole potatoes and cut them into French fry shapes, about 1/4-inch thick. 
  • SOAK: Soak the potatoes in cold water at least 20 minutes to remove some of the starch. 
  • DRY: Don’t skip this step! Transfer you potatoes to a colander after soaking and drain well then pat dry them with paper towels or a clean kitchen towel.
  • OIL & SEASON: Drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle with salt. 
  • Cook: Place a single layer of potatoes in the basket of the air fryer and cook for about 15 minutes or until crispy and golden brown, at 380 F- shaking the basket every 5 minutes to make sure they cook evenly.

I mean it is a real recipe and all, but also so simple, easy and quick to make. All you need for these air fried zucchini chips are two zucchini, an egg, panko, grated parmesan cheese, cooking spray, salt and pepper. 

How to Make Air-Fried Zucchini Chips:

(Scroll down for quantities)

 Think of this recipe in three sections: 

  1. Basic prep. You’ll start by cutting the zucchini into thin round slices and mixing up the crispy topping. Try to make zucchini rounds equal so they all cook evenly.  Then you whisk the egg, salt and pepper together. 
  2. Dredging. This part can get a little messy! Dunk each zucchini slice in the egg mixture, then toss it in the  panko mixture. Coat both sides evenly, place it in the greased air fryer basket. Repeat with the remaining zucchini slices! 
  3. Air Frying! Drizzle the zucchini chips with cooking spray and cook until they’re golden brown and crisp for about 5 minutes at 350 F.

In the authentic version of this eggplant fatteh recipe, eggplants, pita bread and pine nuts are usually deep fried. But if you are looking for a healthier version, I suggest air frying the eggplants, pita bread and pine nuts, like I did. They will taste just the same, if not even better! 

What is Fatteh? 

The word “Fatteh” translates to “crumbs” in the Arabic language. In Fatteh, bread is toasted or fried and then broken up into small pieces, and that’s where the word Fatteh came from, at least that’s what I think. There are different varieties of Fatteh recipes, but today I’m sharing my way of making this simple Eggplant and chickpeas Fatteh.

Falafel is a popular Lebanese street food, that is traditionally cooked deep-fried. I always avoided making Falafel because I like to stay light on fried food. Not anymore! Now that I own a sweet air fryer, which by the way was one the best additions to my kitchen.
