Air Fryer Chiko Rolls

The air fryer is the perfect healthier way for cooking Chiko rolls as fast as possible.

Air Fryer Chiko Rolls

Once the Chiko roll is ready to eat, it should have a crispy batter on the outside and have a hot cabbage filling on the inside. You can eat it by itself, but it usually goes great with a good amount of tomato sauce.

The Chiko roll is an Australian creation and is heavily inspired by the traditional Chinese spring roll. It is usually eaten with your hands, so it is excellent if you need to eat on the move. Traditionally they are deep-fried but can be cooked in the oven or air fryer.

Chiko Rolls with Tomato Sauce

The air fryer is great for cooking Chiko rolls as you do not need to use much oil to get it crispy. It will also have your meal cooked in less than twenty minutes. I find the air fryer much easier to use than the traditional oven or deep fryer.

A single Chiko roll should be enough for one person, so this recipe should cook enough to feed four people. You can make some additional side dishes to feed more people or you can simply cook more Chiko rolls.

Side Dishes to go with Chiko Rolls

Homemade steak fries or oven-baked potatoes are great as a side dish to serve with Chiko rolls. Personally, I love the traditional deep-fried fries as they just match perfectly with this delicious comfort food.

A good salad is always a great side dish but will require extra time in the kitchen. Something like potato salad, coleslaw, or even a pasta salad will work very nicely. You can buy these at your local supermarket if you do not feel like spending too much time cooking.

Chiko Rolls

Dim sims are an Australian classic and will match nicely with these Chiko rolls. You can cook the dim sims in the air fryer alongside the Chiko rolls. Pick whatever works best for you. Just remember not to overload the air fryer.

Recipe Tips

  • The oil will help the Chiko rolls get an extra crispy batter. If you want to keep things as healthy as possible, simply leave the oil out.
  • Depending on the size of your air fryer, you might be able to fit more Chiko rolls. Make sure they do not overlap, as it might cause them to go soggy.
  • Flipping the rolls halfway through cooking will help ensure a more even cook. However, it is not super necessary.
  • Chiko rolls are an Australian creation and might be tricky to find in other countries.
  • A meat thermometer is great for checking whether the center of the food is hot.
