  • 1 lb. carrots or 500 gm.
  • 1.5 tsp. Olive oil
  • ½ tsp. Garlic powder
  • ¾ tsp. Pepper powder
  • ½ tsp. Himalayan pink salt or regular salt


  • Take the carrots. Wash them well. Peel them and cut them into chunks or fries. This is done to ensure faster roasting of carrots. Whole carrots take much longer.
  • Add all the spices to the carrots. Now add the olive oil and mix everything so that all carrot pieces are well coated.
  • Preheat air fryer at 180C or 360F for 3 minutes.
  • Brush the basket with oil and put in all the carrots. It’s okay if they overlap a bit.
  • ir fry for about 9-10 minutes at 360F or 180C till they are lightly browned and cooked.
  • I shake the basket once every 3-4 minutes to ensure even cooking.
  • Your carrots are done. Don’t overcook them or they will dry out inside.
  • I love them browned outside and soft cooked inside.
  • They are delicious. Serve them as a veggie side or even a tasty snack. My teen devoured them gladly.


1. This recipe is already vegan and vegetarian. It is super easy to make.
2. Try to cut carrots into even-sized pieces for uniform cooking. You can cut them into chunks or fries. Leaving the carrots whole increases the cooking time by a lot.
3. You can use melted butter in place of olive oil for a more buttery flavor.
4. You can also use any herbs or spices of your choice. Garnish with chopped parsley or cilantro leaves.
5. You can make the carrots sweet as well. I have shared my seasonings for sweet carrots above the recipe card under variations.
6. Vegetables turn out so good in the air fryer. Do try them out.
