Crispy & Healthy Daikon Radish French Fries

Crispy & Healthy Daikon Radish French Fries

You'll be surprised at the rich flavor! You won't be able to stop eating. Frying the daikon radish skin makes it crispy like french fries. A healthy and delicious snack.

Ingredients: An easy to make amount

Skin from 8 cm of daikon radish
about 80 g
a small amount
Plain flour
2 teaspoons
2 teaspoons
Frying oil
as needed


1. Peel the radish cut into 4 cm pieces, and cut the skin into 5 mm pieces. Sprinkle salt and submerge in water (if storing a large amount in the freezer, you don't have to salt them).
2. After some time, strain and wring out excess moisture, put in a plastic bag together with the flour and shake to completely coat. Leave some air in the bag.
3. Fry in oil, and once they're crispy, they're finished. Enjoy! Add whatever flavor you like, but I think they're most delicious as-is.
4. Cut into whatever thickness and fry for as long as you like. You could try to imitate the fries from a certain fast-food chain?
5. I like the thin fries from a certain fast-food chain, so I peel the skin thinly, cut them finely, and fry until crispy.
6. For flavoring you could use salt and pepper, ao-nori, Krazy Salt, or curry powder to the flour. There's lots of variations, just like with potatoes.

Story Behind this Recipe

I was going to make a recipe for burdock root, but then I noticed a ton of daikon radish skins in my freezer, which is how I thought to make this.
