Prep Time15 mins
Cook Time35 mins
- 3–4 medium potatoes Russet/ Royal dutch cream/ Red royal/purple work well.
- 3 tbsp. oil 2 tablespoon oil for seasoning
- 1 tbsp. garlic
- ½ tbsp. oregano or any seasoning
- 1 tp salt
- salt as per taste
Mix chopped garlic,salt and oregano(or any seasoning) with 2 tablespoon oil,keep it aside.
Wash and remove any dirt from the potatoes.
Place the potato alongside 2 inverted spoons. Cut the potato with the knife using the spoons to prevent from cutting all the way down through the potato.(refer to picture in the post above)
Soak these in water again to remove any starch from the slices, else they will stick together.
Dry it on paper towels to remove excess water.
Preheat the air fryer at 200 deg C (390 F). for 10 mins. Brush 1 tbsp. oil on it. Air fry for 8 mins at 200 deg C (390 F) to make hasselback potatoes in the air fryer.
Apply the oil with seasoning to potatoes Air fry further for 15-16 mins at 200 deg C(390 F) or until the potatoes are cooked. Bigger potatoes will need few more minutes. Serve hot/warm.
While picking these up from the air fryer, be careful as they might break off,I prefer to use a turner or a spatula to pick these up.
NotesRusset type of potatoes work best for making chips at home. Here in Australia, we prefer using local variety like Royal dutch cream/ Red royal / purple.
