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 banana chips. 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.
Banana Chips – 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 a 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 the extra oil out) and place on a plate.
Let it cool and store. Enjoy!
