Gluten Free Chia Seed Batter Mix

gluten free batter

Crunchy deep fried vegetable sticks are a great appetizer. Unfortunately many people are allergic to gluten. Fear no more! This gluten free batter mix is great for any deep fried recipe if you want crunch but still a fluffy, light crust.

Chia seeds will absorb 10 to 12 times their weight in water. They are a natural thickener with a sticky texture which will make a better coating batter mix for deep frying.

For a more crunchy fritter, replace the sticky rice flour with the chickpea flour. Make sure your oil is warm enough, use a thermometer for exact measurement.
