Delicious curly fries are an easy starter, perfect for any occasion. If you love the taste of freshly made curly fries but don’t always have the time, frozen curly fries are a great alternative. Recently, I tried Arby’s frozen curly fries for the first time, and I was impressed by their quality. When air fried, they had a perfect golden brown sheen, a crispy texture on the outside, and a fluffy, flavorful interior. Serve these easy-to-make fries as a side dish with your favorite dipping sauce, and prepare for a memorable meal.
The Joy of Fries
Who can ever get tired of delicious fries? Whether it’s French fries, waffle fries, or steak fries, most of us are fry enthusiasts. By air frying them in a Ninja Foodi, you can enjoy a healthier version compared to the deep-fried ones you get at restaurants. Plus, you can make them anytime you want, right in the comfort of your own kitchen. No need to wait for a delivery. The results are just as good as the deep-fried variety, with the added bonus of reducing your oil intake.
There are many varieties of curly fries available in the market, including Ore-Ida zesty curly fries, Wendy’s, McCain Super Spirals, and Lamb Weston. Curly fries are a versatile side dish that pairs well with vegan hot dogs, pot pies, or simply on their own. These crispy fries are quick and easy to make, making them a perfect choice when you want a satisfying snack without the hassle of preparing an elaborate meal.

To ensure even cooking, use half of the pack (approximately 300 g) in a single basket. Air fry the curly fries according to the instructions on the package. Once they are cooked to perfection, serve them hot with your favorite accompaniment, such as vegan mayo or tomato ketchup.
Hint: Remember to clean your air fryer once it cools down to preserve the great taste for your next cooking adventure.
While the classic pairing of curly fries with ketchup or barbecue sauce is always delicious, you can also explore other options:
- Bun: Serve the curly fries with a bun, tomato ketchup, and a slice of cheese to create a tasty sandwich.
- Vegetarian: Try accompanying the fries with honey mustard sauce for a tangy vegetarian twist.
If you’re feeling adventurous, here are a few ideas to elevate your curly fries:
- Sprinkle shredded cheese or nutritional yeast on top after cooking for a cheesy touch.
- Air fry the fries for an additional 1-2 minutes to achieve an even more indulgent cheesy version.
- For leftover curly fries, toss them in a tablespoon of oil and add seasonings like onion powder, garlic powder, and garam masala. Experiment with spices such as cayenne pepper and black pepper for added flavor.
All you need is an air fryer to cook these delicious curly fries to perfection.
Store any leftover curly fries in an air-tight container for 3-4 days. When ready to enjoy them again, air fry them for 3-5 minutes to restore their crispy texture.
To ensure the best results, always remove any leftover food from the air fryer basket before using it. Additionally, make sure to preheat your air fryer before cooking for optimal results.
