Kripik Sanjai or Kripik Singkong Balado is very popular among Indonesians. Cassava chips that are coated with balado seasoning. It’s best to enjoy these Balado Cassava Chips with Sate Padang.

This time, I made a short way to make them. I admitted I didn’t use fresh cassava roots but trust me they still tasted as good as the ones that I had back in Indonesia.

I bought a package of ready-to-eat cassava chips at Edmonton local Indian store. I seasoned with balado spices which was made by yours truly.

Using a combination of 1 fresh red chilies, dried chilies and chili powder was still resulting a good flavour. You can always dried chilies or chilli powder only. However, please make sure that your chilli powder only contains pure red chilies.
