  • Cut each pepper and remove the thick veins with seeds. Now cut each pepper into thin slices. You can cut them into squares too.
  • Keep the pieces of similar size to cook evenly.
  • Toss the cut peppers with oil and spices.
  • Mix well. Don’t keep for long after mixing as it will start releasing water.
  • Preheat air fryer at 360F or 180C for 4 minutes.
  • Lay the peppers in a single layer in the air fryer basket.
  • Air fry at 180C or 360F for about 8-10 minutes till the peppers are cooked and the sides have started browning.
  • I air fry for about 8 minutes as I like my peppers to have a bit of a bite. If you want them to be more cooked then cook longer.
  • Your peppers are done. Have them as a side or in other preparations like salads and wraps.
  • Enjoy.
