Radish chips are a great low carb alternative to potato chips. This recipe boils thin slices of radishes to soften and then deep fries them until golden.
Print Recipe


  • Oil for deep frying preferably palm oil
  • 16 oz radishes
  • ½ teaspoon coarse salt kosher or sea


  • In a deep fat fryer or heavy saucepan, heat 2 to 3 inches oil to 325°F.
  • Using a mandoline slicer or very sharp knife, cut radishes into very thin slices.
  • Place radishes in pot and cover with water. Heat to boiling. Boil over high heat 4 to 5 minutes or until radish are translucent and skins lighten. Drain radish slices in colander.
  • Slowly add the radish slices to the hot oil to prevent splattering.
  • Fry radish slices in hot oil 8 to 10 minutes or until they turn a deep golden brown.
  • Drain on paper towels and season with salt.



Radish  chips can be baked in the oven if you'd rather not deep fry them. To bake, pat them dry with paper towels after boiling and draining, then bake at 350°F until they become brown and crisp. It's best to cut the radishes very thin.
