  • 1/2 Cup of Almond Flour
  • 1/4 Cup of Coconut Flour
  • Salt & Pepper

These are such a yummy alternative to your usually veg sides and also make a great dish on their own with a few nice dips! Like a hybrid between tempura and fries these will be devoured in seconds...

Read on to see how India makes something so healthy and nutritious feel so indulgent and bad! This is the perfect alternative to greasy chips.


Step 1

Whisk one egg and add a dash of salt and pepper. In a separate bowl, combine the coconut flour, almond flour and herbs/paprika.

Step 5

Let it sizzle for about 3 minutes and then flip them so that they brown evenly. When they're nice and crispy, transfer them to a baking sheet and bake at 220'C for about 10 minutes, flipping them half way through.

Step 6

Take them out, sprinkle them with some salt and eat hot straight from the oven with your favourite sauce (they're unreal with garlic mayo)! This recipe is Gluten Free, Dairy Free & Paleo.
