Recipe Tips and Suggestions

Chili Paste: It’s very common to serve baby corn with a side of chili paste, you can also rub some chili paste over the baby corn, before roasting it.

Crowding: For best results, do not crowd the air fryer basket, leave plenty of room around the baby corn, so it crisps up nicely. The hot air really needs to circulate around the corn, for it to get crispy.

Timing: Since all air fryers are slightly different, the cooking time may vary by a couple of minutes. Remember to check on your baby corn while it cooks up, so you get a great batch of roasted baby corn.

Flipping: Flip your corn several times during the cooking process, so that all sides get perfectly roasted. Use either a large fork or a pair of tongs to flip the baby corn.
