Mildly Spiced Celeriac Chips Recipe

Mildly Spiced Celeriac Chips

Celeriac is a very versatile root vegetable which is often overlooked. It has a subtle celery flavour with a delicious nuttiness that goes very well with game. Celeriac can be eaten raw, or cooked in much the same way as you would a potato; boiled and mashed with a little butter and milk, thinly sliced and cooked 'dauphinoise', or chipped and baked as with this tasty, simple recipe. Mildly Spiced Celeriac Chips
Serves:  4
Preparation Time:  10 minutes
Cooking Time:  30-35 minutes
2 medium celeriac (0.9kg/2lb total weight)
3 tbsp groundnut or vegetable oil
2 tsp mild curry powder
1. Peel the celeriac, slicing off the top and bottom and sweeping down the sides with a heavy, sharp knife to remove the tough skin. Cut the celeriac into thumb-thick slices and then into fat chips.

2. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil, throw in the chips and blanch (boil rapidly, uncovered, for 1-2 minutes). Drain the chips well and put back into the dry saucepan. Add the oil, curry powder and sea salt. Toss until well coated.

3. Spread the chips over a large heavy baking sheet, leaving plenty of space (you may need 2 sheets). They take 30-35 minutes to cook at 230C/gas mark 8/fan 210C oven.
When buying Celeriac, choose those that are firm and small to medium sized, as the larger ones can be a little 'woody.' Store in the fridge for up to a week.
