  • 1/3 Cup Tapioca flour
  • 1 Cup Sesame seeds
  • 2 Avocados Cut into thick 2cm slices
  • 3 - 4 tbsp Coconut Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Spice curry powder, smoked paprika,cumin or turmeric (Optional)
  • 80 ml Water Room temp is best


  1. Whisk the tapioca flour and 80ml of water in a bowl until combined.

  2. Place the sesame seeds in a small, shallow bowl.

  3. Dip the avocado slice into the tapioca mixture to coat, then coat with the sesame seeds, patting down gently. 

  4. Heat the coconut oil to 160°C in a frying pan or saucepan.  To test the temperature, drop a piece of avocado in the oil – it should bubble instantly around the edges.

  5. Working in batches, fry the avocado for 50-60 seconds on each side or until the sesame seeds are golden.  Drain on paper towel and season with a little spice (if using) and salt.
