These keto French fries are the most beautiful ‘mistakes’ in my cooking experience. They are crunchy, fluffy and so satisfying to eat. It’s amazing what two simple ingredients can do. Cooking is magic x
100g ground almonds (you can use finer almond flour but the texture will be denser and crunchier)
3 tsp xanthan gum (or konjac powder if you have it!)
6 tbsp hot water
Coconut flour fries:
50g coconut flour
3 tsp xanthan gum (or konjac powder)
7-8 tbsps hot water
1. Place ground almonds (or coconut flour) and xanthan gum in a mixing bowl, mix well. Add in hot water and mix/knead the dough till all the ingredients are blended together. Leave to rest for 15 minutes.
2. Roll out the dough till it reaches 1/4 cm thickness, cut it into slim strips (French fries shapes).
3. In a frying pan, add in a generous amount of oil (enough to cover the fries). Maintain medium to low heat. Gently place the dough strips in the pan and fry them till they are golden brown on all sides.
Place the dough strips on a baking tray (lined with baking sheet and greased with oil). Brush a generous amount of oil on top of the to-be French fries and bake in a 200°C/400°F preheated oven till the fries are golden brown (10-15mins). Toss the fries around in between to make sure they bake evenly on all sides.
4. Transfer the fries to a plate lined with kitchen towels (to remove access oil). Sprinkle with Himalayan salt or sea salt. And enjoy x
