Vazhakai Chips ( Raw Banana Chips)

Raw Plaintain Chips


Raw plantain-2
Chilli powder- 2 tbsp(adjust according to your taste)
Salt- 1 1 /2 tsp
Asoefotida- 1/4 tsp
Oil- for deep frying.
Chips slicer


Mix the chilly powder,salt and asoefotida and keep the mixture ready to sprinkle on the hot chips .

Peel the raw plantain keeping the top intactso you can hold it and slice in the chips slicer to save your fingers from being sliced.Keep it soaked in a bowl of water to avoid darkening.

Keep the slices soaked in water in a bowl till you fry it in oil..

  1. Fry the slices in hot oil and initially the slices stick to each other.
  1. Don't stir with a ladle trying to separate the slices as it'l stick to the ladle.allow it to cook then it'l separate.
  1. Fry till the sides start to brown.Drain and take it out of oil onto tissue,wait for 2 minutes so the tissue absorbs some of the excess oil.
  1. Sprinkle a teaspoon of the chilly powder salt mixture and shake the chip so it coats evenly.
  1. Allow to cool completely and transfer to a airtight container.
  1. This lasts for a month crisp and tasty..but if it's left without being munched by gluttony snackers like me...

Enjoy these crisp and easy homemade chips..
