Easy to prepare and delicious when served with sour cream or a homemade chipotle dipping sauce, air fryer cabbage fritters are a hit. Simple to bind and cook without creating a mess on parchment paper, I adore the way the crunchy cabbage gives them a caramelised, crispy exterior and a soft, crunchy interior


  1. One medium carrot, finely chopped
  2. two cups raw cabbage, finely shredded
  3. one egg
  4. One tablespoon of sour cream, plus additional to serve
  5. Three tablespoons of all-purpose flour
  6. one-tsp salt, or according to taste
  7. One teaspoon of your preferred seasoning or ½ teaspoon pepper, to taste. I made use of Mrs. Dash Spice Blend.
  8. One tablespoon of vegetable oil of choice, or olive oil, to brush the fritters with


  1. Set the air fryer to 375°F (190°C).
  2. Take off the cabbage’s upper leaves.
  3. Shred the cabbage finely. For simple chopping and shredding of cabbage and carrots, I use a Braun food processor.
  4. Shredded carrot and cabbage, baking soda, flour, sour cream, spices, and egg should all be combined in a big basin. Stir well.
  5. Add the herbs, garlic, and green onions, if preferred.
    Pick up the small amount of ingredients (about two teaspoons) and form it into a ball with your palms.
  6. Keep in mind to slightly moisten your hands if the mixture begins to become sticky.
  7. Place the balls in the air fryer basket or tray in a single layer.
  8. Press the balls with a spoon to form a pancake shape that is about ½ inch thick.
  9. Mist each fritter with a small amount of oil spray. An alternative is to use oil for brushing. Air fried till golden brown with caramelised edges, 3–4 minutes per side.
  10. Give them a few minutes to cool. Enjoy them warm or cold and dip them into a flavorful, garlicky Chipotle sauce or serve with a dollop of sour cream (approximately 1 teaspoon).


  • To lay out the cabbage fritters, use parchment paper. They won’t stick and will be simple to flip. However, continue to brush the fritter with oil.
  • Almond flour or gluten-free flour can be used in its place.
  • You can season with anything you like.
  • If preferred, add a few fresh herbs. I especially enjoy using finely sliced green onion and fresh dill.
  • To create a fully loaded cabbage fritter, add cooked bacon pieces or crumbles, a dollop of sour cream, and green onions or chives on top.
