Which potatoes are best for these roasted potatoes?
Any potatoes are great for this recipe. However, I love to make the roasted potatoes with baby potatoes. For baby potatoes, yukun gold, keep the skin on. If using russet that has a thicker skin you may peel off the skin. If using baby potatoes, you can halve them. Or if using regular potatoes, dice them into bite-sized pieces.
Ingredients you will need -
salt and pepper
seasonings - any fav seasonings/ herbs
oil spray - avocado oil or olive oil
How to make roasted potatoes (diced potatoes) in the air fryer?
Clean the potatoes thoroughly. Cut it into halves or more if taken medium size potatoes.
Wash the potatoes once after chopping too. This will remove starch and make the potatoes crispier. Keep it for sometime or wipe lightly with a dry kitchen towel.
Place them in a mixing bowl. Add oil followed by the seasonings. Mix them well.
Now transfer the seasoned potatoes to the air fryer basket. Set the air fryer at 400F or 200C for 12 minutes. Pause and shake in the halfway at 6 minute mark. If required spray a little more oil now. This will give a nice brown color to the roasted potatoes.

Cut the baby potatoes into halves or quarters and air fry for 12 - 15 minutes at 400 F.
Soaking potatoes in water before air frying (or any other method of frying) helps in making them crispier. This helps removing excess starch that may make the potatoes soggy while cooking. By soaking in water (especially cold water) it takes out the excess starch from the potatoes. So once you dice the potatoes, wash them off in fresh water and then soak in cold water for 20 - 30 minutes.
Yes. You can make them completely oil-free as well. But a little oil adds to the golden brown color and crispier too. However with air fryer it's easier to crisp them up. To make the air fryer potatoes completely oil-free, substitute oil with broth. Add broth to the seasonings and rub them well on the potatoes. This will help in adding a nice flavor and equally crisps up the potatoes.
Yes. This roasted potatoes are completely vegan. However, if you are not vegetarian, you can also coat the potatoes in garlic butter coating in the halfways.
