Orange Kumara Chips

    50 minutes

    Kumara chips are a great option when plain old chips just won't do it. This recipe spices it up with a wee bit of lime zest, chilli and coriander.

    Serves: 2 

    • 2 kumara, unpeeled
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil, or as needed
    • salt and ground black pepper, to taste
    • 1 tablespoon sea salt
    • 1 1/2 teaspoons lime zest, grated
    • 1/8 teaspoon chilli powder
    • 1/8 teaspoon paprika
    • 1/8 teaspoon chilli flakes
    • 1/4 cup chopped fresh coriander

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:40min  ›  Ready in:50min 

    1. Place the kumara into a large pot and cover with water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until tender, about 15 minutes. Drain and allow to steam dry for a minute or two. Allow to cool, then slice each kumara into wedges. Arrange wedges on a baking tray.
    2. Preheat an oven to 200 degrees C.
    3. Brush the kumara wedges with olive oil, and lightly season with salt and pepper. Combine sea salt, lime zest, chilli powder, paprika, and chilli flakes in a small bowl.
    4. Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown on all sides, about 20 minutes. Plate and sprinkle with the seasoning mixture and coriander immediately.

    NOTE FROM RECIPE MAKER: When submitted, my instructions said to "boil till fork tender". Allrecipes added to that sentence "about 20 minutes". Now that I have see two reviews stating the fries/wedges are too "mushy" I am thinking cooks are boiling for 20 minutes and not until fork tender. If you boil till fork tender, the "mushy" quality should hopefully not be an issue. Remember, recipes are a guideline to discovering what you like best. So learn, practice, experiment, and don't be afraid to mess. Happy Cooking!  -  29 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    Fabulous flavor, though making sure they're only fork-tender is important! I used 1 tbsp table salt instead of kosher, and will decrease it to 2 tsp table salt next time.  -  14 Sep 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    followed directions exactly - make sure you use sea salt it really puts it over the edge. Big hit at our picnic. Shame on the reviewer who gave 1 star for something the submitter can't control.  -  23 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
