Step By Step Instructions: 

  1. Mix dry ingredients and start adding water gradually until the dough is formed.
  2. Combine well then cover with cling film and let it rest for 15 min
  3. Roll it between two cling film sheets of parchment paper. Roll it thin ¼ cm
  4. Cut the dough lengthwise into thin strips ( don’t focus much on shape, fries aren’t meant to be one size)
  5. Heat one cup of Coconut oil (medium to low heat) and fry your strips until golden
  6. Finish your fries by sprinkling them with Himalayan salt and paprika
  7. Serve hot with sugar free Ketchup!

Cooking Tips From Salma:

  • Use boiling water or else xanthan gum won’t get activated
  • If you are using almond flour the dough is much stickier than while using coconut flour so don’t panic!
  • You need to let the dough rest for 15 minutes to give the xanthan gum time to work and bind ingredients, don’t rush this step
  • Roll it thinner than usual if you are using coconut flour because it will puff while frying
