Chickpea Flour Coated Chips

Who doesn’t love chips (home made fries)?  We all love them and I know that everyone has their own ways of eating them.  Some enjoy them with tomato sauce and some with Cheese sauce.  In my home, we love them with salt and chili powder sprinkled on them and with either the hot encona sauce ot tamarind sauce.  Some love chip butties whereas some love them topped with cheese.  We made these chick pea flour coated chip and realised that these fries taste a lot better than ordinary chips.   They are great eaten with ketchup or any dip.



  • 5 medium potatoes
  • 2 tbls chick pea flour
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tsp hot chili powder (optional)
  • oil to fry them in


  1.  Peel, wash and slice the potatoes like chips.

2.  Spread them out on a plate and sprinkle the chickpea flour,salt and pepper on the potatoes and mix using well using your hands.

3.  Heat some oil i a wok and fry the coated chips until they are crispy on the outside but soft inside.
