Banana Chips

The famous Nendra Palam chips from Kerala, was on my cooking wish list since long. Surprisingly, I found that it is very easy to make. Taste is priceless!


5 semi raw bananas (Nendra Bale bananas) a tinge of sweetness is it’s USP.

1tsp Salt mixed in a bowl of 20 ml water.

Oil to fry.

Method Of Preparation:

Longitudinally Slit the peel of bananas. Oil your hands to avoid blackish stains while peeling the banana skin.

Drop all the peeled bananas in a deep vessel of turmeric water .

This removes the sliminess of the bananas.

After 20 mins drain the  water.

Pat dry with a cloth.

Slice the bananas in a chips maker directly into hot oil. ( Be careful with this step as you are handling very hot oil here!)

When slightly crisp, add 1/2 tsp of salt water in hot oil. (Again, be very careful during this step too,  as you are pouring small amount of water into hot oil which might cause the oil to splatter out.)

Fry till crisp. Take the chips out of the oil ( drain extra oil out) and place on a plate.

Let it cool and store. Enjoy!
