  • 1 tablespoon ground black pepper
  • 1 tablespoon Dried yellow mustard
  • 4 tablespoons paprika
  • 1 tablespoon ground ginger
  • 3 tablespoons Grounds white pepper
  • 250 grams buttermilk
  • 1 egg, Beaten


  • 2 fillets chicken breast, Roughly 500 - 750g
  • Oil of choice for frying, Sunflower, canola or rice bran

Recipe's preparation

  1. Blitz basmati rice, brown rice, spelt grain and tapioca pearls for 2-3mins/ speed 10/ mc on or until fine.


    Place all spices and herbs into tmx.


    Blitz on speed 10 for 30 seconds. Scrape down. Repeat. You are wanting a fine grind.


    Add flour and blitz on speed 10 for 20 seconds.


    Have a taste of your flour. You can tweak the quantities used to suit your tastes.  Add additional flavour of needed and blitz again on speed 10 for 30 seconds to ensure its well combined. If you feel the flavours are too intense you can add more flour.


    Devide flour into 3, set aside 2/3 mixture.


    Pour 1/3 of the flour onto a plate Or into a bag.


    Mix buttermilk and egg together in a bowl,  soak chicken in buttermilk mixture at room temperature for 20-30mins.


    Coat chicken strips in egg and then flour. I then put them in egg and then flour again. This gives it a realcrispy coating.  allow to sit on rack over a baking sheet for 20mins.


    Meanwhile, heat about 2cm of oil in frypan until medium heat Is achieved.  You need enough oil to shallow fry your strips.


    Fry a few strips at a time. Don't overload the pan. Cook until white and cooked through. The time will vary on the size of your strips. Just watch them.


    Place on absorbent paper to drain excess oil, while repeating the cooking process until all chicken is cooked.
