VeganMoFo: Spicy Yam Chips

Was just thinking that I should be able to write about chickpeas for the rest of the month.

Tonight we had a little sidedish of spicy yam chips.
Just slice the yam into chip slices, not too thin.

For the batter mix chickpeaflour and bit of riceflour (for crispness) with water. Pancakebatter thickness.

For spiceness i decided to make my own currypowder, something not tried before. I've been reading recipes for it lately and decided to combine what i remembered.
So, dryroasted some fenugreek seeds, coriander seeds, cumin seeds, black pepper until the fenugreeks turned red. Transfer to mortar and pestle, add some tumeric powder, grind away, ready........wow, what a fantastic smell, already i regret not having made enough for the whole month!

Add spices to batter, coat chips and fry in oil till done ( soft in middle and golden brown).

Simple, forgot to take pictures during the process, spicemixing would have looked great. But, all we have picture wise is this leftover chip on the webcam....Ah, well, looks like halloween.
