Love french fries? These crunchy air-fried masala fries are perfectly spiced with red chili, turmeric, and aromatic garam masala. Optionally sprinkle with some chat masala just before serving for a delicious chatpata snack.

  • Scrub and rinse the potatoes well under running water. Wipe well with paper towels. Peeling is optional and I would recommend making these fries with potato skin.
  • Cut the potatoes into long ⅓ inch thick sticks. Ideally, they should be about 4 inches long, to prevent them from breaking. Place the cut potatoes in a medium-sized bowl and add water to the bowl. Allow the cut potatoes to soak for 15 mins.
  • After 15 minutes, drain all the water out and place the potatoes on a kitchen towel and wipe them dry.
  • Add dried potatoes to a clean and dry bowl. Add oil, garlic powder, salt, red chili powder, turmeric, and garam masala. Toss so that the potatoes evenly coated with all the spices.
  • Preheat the air fryer at 400°F for 5 minutes. Spray the basket with oil. Place the fries in the air fryer basket, evenly spreading and crisscrossing the overlapped fries. If your air fryer basket is small you may want to cook the fries in 2 batches.
  • Air Fry at 380°F or 190°C for 25 mins. Shake the basket halfway through. If you like more crunchy fries, cook for an additional 2 to 3 minutes.



In the Cosori Air Fryer, I am able to cook 2 medium-sized potatoes at a time. Depending on the size and type of your fryer you may want to air fry in batches. If you are making only half the batch, reduce the time to 14 to 15 minutes. 
Oven Instructions:
You can make these fries in the oven, although they may not come out as crisp. Preheat the oven at 425 F. Line the fries in a parchment paper-lined baking tray in a single layer. Bake them at 425 for 20 to 25 minutes, flipping halfway.
