Baked Cassava Chips (Healthy Option to Fried Cassava Chips)
- Cassava, 2 – 3 large pieces.
- Red Chilli Powder,
- Lemon Juice
Peel away the red skin using a potato peeler or sharp knife
Cut the ends off the cassava. Now cut the cassava into large pieces around 3 inches in length.
Bring a large pan of water to the boil. Add a teaspoon of salt.
Cook the cassave in the water for around 30 – 45 minutes. It will start to split when it is done.
Drain the water out from the pan and place the cassava on a chopping board.. (careful, its hot)
Slice it up into “chip” sized pieces. Place the pieces onto a baking tray, oven proof pot or similar (I used a piece of foil on a oven shelf)
Sprinkle some red chilli powder over the chips. You might want to add a little more salt here, and cracked black pepper. (I used garam masala instead of red chilli powder)
Sprinkle some lemon juice over the chips. The lemon juice helps the chips to become crisp and glazed.
Place the chips into a pre-heated oven at 220 degrees centigrade. Leave it for around 15 minutes or until the chips are turning golden around the edges.
