How to cut the cabbage to roast in air fryer?
To make the roasted cabbage in the air fryer, make sure to cut them a little thicker. If you are cut them like discs or as wedges as per choice. I have made them in discs here.
First, cut the stem off the cabbage. Them slice it horizontally making discs of 2 cm - 3 cm (3/4 to 1 inch) thickness each. This will make roughly 4 flat discs of equivalent shape.
For wedges, cut them vertically into equal halves. Then again cut the halves into two halves. Now the cabbage is cut in 4 equal halves (quarters). Take one part and cut it into two equal parts. For that, start cutting from the edge towards the base. In the end you will have 8 wedges in the end.
Don't worry if the sides get burnt or charred.

Preheat the air fryer at 400 F or 200c for 3 - 4 minutes.
Place the cabbage on a clean plate and brush the surface with oil. Then sprinkle onion powder, garlic powder, cayenne pepper or paprika, salt, and pepper on the cabbage discs.
Flip the cabbage and repeat the oil brushing and seasoning to the cabbage. Carefully transfer the discs into the air fryer basket or arrange them on the tray. Make sure they are not overlapped with one another.
