  • Popadoms

    How bad are popadoms? They are made from gram flour. Each one is 3.9-4g carbs, 0.1g of which being sugars.

    Thanks,

    Dude,

    Stay away from them if you can. They're made out of lentil (which is a legume) flour, plus they usually fry them in veggie oil at restaurants.
    Two strikes against them. Third strike is...who could eat one or two???
    Dangerous teritory.

      Thanks I'm quite disciplined so having one a day wouldn't be a problem but as you say 2 strikes

        Love 'em, but haven't eaten them since going primal. Could knock another one of those strikes off by cooking them at home (they "bake" up nicely in the microwave without any oil, or you could pan cook them with a primal oil....). But you'd still be left with the lentil flour strike...

          What is a popadom? Sounds some kind of ancient beast that predates Grok.

              From the "trusty" Wikipedia (but it seems about right...): "Papadum is a thin Indian crispy cuisine sometimes described as a cracker or flatbread. They are typically served as an accompaniment to a meal in India. It is also eaten as an appetizer or a snack and can be eaten with various toppings such as chopped onions, chutney or other dips and condiments."

              They can be made from a bunch of different flours (rice, chick pea, etc.), but, as kuno said, the most common seems to be lentil flour.

                      Once and a while would be ok I guess. My main concern would be the cooking oil. If you can cook them up yourself with coconut oil that might be better.

                        well there is this whole debate about soaking legumes and whether or not that makes them better. I dont know if lentils are soaked though before making flour??? Frankly I like poppadums when I'm having a curry and I just give them a quick zap in the microwave, no oil needed. And I would only eat 1 or if really piggy 2 so I dont feel like it's a big deal. Depends on how "primal" you want to be.
