How to Make Homemade Air Fryer Cajun Curly French Fries – the Recipe Method
The process is simple enough. Get yourself a couple of large baking potatoes. I used a spiralizer to make curly fries, but you can just slice them into french fry size if you’d like. I recommend getting a spiralizer, as it makes the process super easy.

I’ll link out to a good spiralizer and air fryer below so you can take a look at my recommendations.
Soak the potatoes in water for 30 minutes, then drain, dry, and toss them with your oil and seasonings. I call for a couple tablespoons of Cajun seasonings, but you can add more if you’d like. Potatoes can REALLY absorb the seasoning, that’s for sure!

Pop them into your air fryer and cook them for 10-15 minutes, tossing them here and there, until they are just to the level of crispiness you like. When they’re done, hit them maybe with another blast of salt and BOOM! You are good to go. Serve them up with a side of smashburger.

  • 2 large baking potatoes
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons Cajun seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Salt and pepper to taste 

  1. Use your spiralizer to spiralizer the potatoes according to directions. You should have a curly fry blade for this.
  2. Soak the potatoes in water for 30 minutes.
  3. Drain the water and dry off the potatoes. Toss them with oil and your seasonings. These potatoes can absorb a lot of seasoning, so don’t be afraid to season liberally.
  4. Preheat your air fryer to 390 degrees F and add half of the potatoes to the basket. Cook for 10-15 minutes total, stirring the basket a few times during cooking, until they are to your preferred crispness.
  5. Remove and do the same for the remaining potatoes.
  6. Enjoy.
