  • Tips:
  • Conversion Chart 1 cup shredded mozzarella = 113 grams 1 cup almond flour = 96 grams Recipe yields 36 pieces of karipap.
  • If you do not want to make that many, simply divide recipe or freeze the karipaps.
  • I used Chaokoh coconut milk.
  • If you want an even lower carb and fat version, omit the coconut milk in the curry.
