Garlicky soybean chips


  • 100 grams boiled soybeans that are already at room temperature and no longer wet to the touch
  • 100 grams rice flour
  • 50 grams cornstarch
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 2 generous pinches kaempfaria galanga aromatic ginger powder
  • 5 dry kafir lime leaves crushed (if you can get fresh lime leaves, would be extra wonderful!)
  • 1/2 tsp store bought ready to use minced garlic
  • 1/2 tbsp ground coriander
  • 1/4 c coconut milk
  • enough water
  • a pinch of turmeric powder
  • salt to taste


  • Dry fry soybeans until just slightly browning, set aside
  • Mix flour and starch and spices and lime leaves
  • Stir in coconut milk and enough water so you would get batter that isn't thick and much thinner than pancake batter
  • Stir in soybeans
  • Heat enough cooking oil on medium high
  • Once oil is hot, spoon batter on the sides of the pan (a heaping tbsp or two each), and let it drip down to the oil (see picture)
  • Once batter is ready, they will fall off to the oil themselves
  • Fry until golden brown and crispy
  • Place fried chips on paper towel lined plate and serve as snacks!
