  • You could try using a different type of oil. Like olive or canola.

  • Hmmm....I've never heard of these before. I can't answer your question and I hate to ask one, but what are they? What do you serve with them? Is it anything like cream of wheat but larger grains? Terribly curious!

  • after cooked they are chips that are good with a little lemon juice & salt on them.. in IL they sale them already cooked I buy them from my grocery store not cooked.. mine are never light & fluffy like the ones allready cooked..
    go to this site & you can see them.. they look like noodles before cooked..

  • I've never made these, but you might try coconut oil. It's supposed to be good to fry with- less greasy, from what I've heard. I don't fry much, so IDK though. Sorry I can't give you more info!
