Not really, but air fryer can mimic the results of deep-frying using only hot air and a small amount of oil. The rapid circulation of hot air around the food makes it crisp. It is not going to taste the same as deep-fried food but is going to be much better than oven-fried food.

Air Fried Egg Rolls

Yields 18 egg rolls


1 tablespoon canola oil

500 grams (1.1 pounds) ground pork

1 medium carrot, grated

½ small cabbage, thinly sliced (in a food processor) or 4 cups ready to us of coleslaw mix

½ bunch scallions, sliced

3 garlic cloves, minced

2 tablespoon grated ginger

3 tablespoon reduced-sodium soy sauce

3 tablespoon sesame oil

1 egg, beaten

18 egg roll wrappers


Heat the canola oil in a wok or a large sauté pan over medium-high heat. Add the pork and cook, breaking up the pork with a spatula, until meat is brown and cooked through.

Stir in the cabbage or coleslaw mix, carrots, and scallions. Cooked until cabbage is wilted, about 5-7 minutes.

Add the garlic, ginger and cook for about 30 seconds or until fragrant.

Stir the soy sauce and sesame oil. Remove from heat.

Put approximately 2-3 tablespoons of filling onto each egg roll wrapper. Brush edges of the wrapper with the beaten egg. Fold according to package directions.

Cook in an air fryer at 390 degrees Fahrenheit. (200 degrees Celsius) for 5 minutes on each side. Don’t forget to spray generously the air fryer basket and egg rolls with your favorite cooking spray before “frying” it. Enjoy dipping in your favorite dipping sauce.
