A crunchy snack made by combining mashed potatoes, chickpea flour, salt, turmeric, mustard oil and a homemade green chilli paste. The mixture is divided into small noodles, then deep-fried until crispy.
Chickpea flour (besan) and mustard oil can be found in Indian/South Asian speciality stores.

New favorite snack! They were a tad bland after cooking but still so good. I topped with a bit of extra salt and fresh cilantro. I used organic Yukon gold potatoes but they really small and there was no way I was going to peel them so I cooked them skin on and a put them in the blender with the pepper, garlic, ginger mix. I was a bit scared because blender mashed potatoes =ewww however I didn't want any of the skins to clog my ricer. It was a total success. After I had a smooth mixture I transferred to a bowl and added the flour. They came out so well and it makes a lot. I love that they are gluten free and vegan. Hubs and I snacked on them like popcorn while watching tv. - 05 Dec 2012 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I love the ingredients and taste! I just can't have salt or fried food, so I cooked this like you'd cook American noodles, by boiling! This was surprisingly easy to make! I used regular vegetable oil this time, next time I need to find mustard oil for a spicier flavor! - 03 Dec 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
