    Popadoms

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

    Thanks,
    SW

    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.

    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.
