Keto Mooli Chips – Daikon Radish Low Carb Recipe

Do you miss fries/chips on the keto diet? Well, not anymore! You need to try this Keto Mooli chips recipe. Mooli, also known as Daikon Radish, is a low carb vegetable with only 2.1g of carbs per 100g! Making it perfect for keto and is a great potato replacement.

What is Mooli?

Mooli (Daikon Radish) Keto Vegetable

Mooli is a mild-flavoured winter radish that is a long, white root.

Originally from East Asia, daikon is now available internationally. Depending on the region, it is also known as:

  • White radish
  • Japanese Radish
  • Chinese Radish
  • Winter Radish
  • Luobo

Both the leaves and root are edible but it’s common to throw away the leaves or served as part of a salad. The leaves have a peppery pungent flavour.

Mooli can be served raw or cooked and has a sweet slightly spicy flavour. It tends to be milder than the more common red radish. Cooking tenderises it and leads to a mellower flavour as well as sweeter taste.

Is Mooli (Daikon Radish) Keto?

Yes! It is extremely low carb at around 2.1g of carbs per 100g. It is also a good source of vitamin C and provides about 27% of your recommended daily intake (based on 100g serving).

Where to buy Mooli in the UK

As its popularity increases, Mooli is being sold in more and more UK stores.

So far, I’ve seen it in the following supermarkets:





If you don’t have any of these stores near you, then check out your local greengrocer or farmers market. Alternatively, you can pay a visit to an Asian supermarket as they normally stock it.

Price-wise, it’s usually around £1.30-£1.60 per kg. Most roots weigh around 400-500g, so works out at about 75p per root/portion, which is cheap!

I find that one medium root is the perfect serving size for one person as part of a main meal.
