Frequently Asked Questions
I have added carrots and cabbage to the air fried masoor rolls, but you can also add some other veggies or fillings of your choice.
Chopped bell peppers, tomatoes, baby corn and mushrooms and all great options.
If you have any leftovers, you can refrigerate them in a clean container with an airtight lid. These should stay good for up to 2 days.
I would recommend reheating these in the Air Fryer to keep them nice and crispy. You can also use your microwave to reheat them, but they won’t retain their crunch factor if you do.
