This unique crisp has a deliciously light texture and can be used in a number of ways, giving chefs a great excuse to get creative in the kitchen! The key ingredient used to create the crisp is tapioca starch. Tapioca is extracted from the root of the cassava plant and is native to the northern and central-west regions of Brazil. Tapioca chips, also known as cassava chips, are just thinly sliced pieces of cassava root that are fried in the same manner as potato chips. Interestingly, these chips are commonly found in India and Sri Lanka.
The method used to create this crisp is very versatile and can be made using different flavors. The carrot purée can be substituted with a mushroom or lobster purée for some really inventive, flavorful chips. The possibilities are endless!
