Preparation time30 minutesCooking time 7 minutesCategorySide sideKitchenColombianKeywordsSweet, dough, food, familyFor how many people6PortionMediumCalories139Fat7.0 g


  • 300 grams of sifted wheat flour
  • 1 spoon of sugar
  • 1 egg
  • a pinch of salt
  • A teaspoon of baking soda
  • The juice of half an orange or aguapanela
  • 1 teaspoon of butter


Step 1. Make dough

The first thing you should do is pass the flour through a sieve. Form a kind of volcano with the flour and open a hole in it to add the tablespoon of sugar and a pinch of salt. Later, pour an egg, baking soda, orange juice or aguapanela and butter into that same little hole. With the help of your hands, mix all these ingredients well to form a dough that should be yellowish. Let it rest for about 20 minutes.

Step 2. Knead again

On a flat surface, sprinkle flour and place the dough already rested. With the help of the rolling pin, stretch the dough until it is very thin (about 2 mm). Once it is spread out, cut it into pieces in the shape and size you want.

Step 3. Fry

In a frying pan, pour oil and heat it. Once it has taken temperature, put the pieces of dough so that they start to fry. They should inflate themselves. Once you see that they are turning golden, turn them over so that they fry on the other side. As soon as you remove them from the oil, sprinkle them with sugar. Done, your chips will be crying out for a bite. Bon Appetite.
