Ingredients to make Kerala plantain chips

  • Green Nendra banana – 10
  • salt – 1 tbsp
  • water – 1 small cup
  • coconut oil – To deep fry.

How to make Kerala plantain chips

  1. Apply some oil to your hand. To some extent it will protect your hand from blackening.
  2. Take fresh, green plantain, wash properly. Take one small sharp knife, remove top and bottom part and give slits on outer skin at regular intervals (may be 4 to 5) from top to bottom.
  3. Now slowly insert your thumb at the slit and open the outer skin.
  4. Immerse these peeled bananas in a bowl of water.
  5. Take one small bowl of water and mix salt and keep is your salted water, which is used while frying chips.
  6. Now you can keep coconut oil for heating. When it is very hot, start making chips. To test the hotness of oil, drop one small piece of plantain, if it pops up immediately, it is ready.
  7. Take out the plantain from water, pat dry and start slicing directly to the hot oil by using a slicer. Use one or two plantain at a time.
  8. Keep the flame at medium. When the slices of plantain cook, the bubbling sound of the oil becomes faint. Now you can add 1 tbsp of salted water, and you will hear lot of bubbling sound. When the sound reduces, the chips are ready.
  9. Remove the chips from the oil, and keep them on a tissue-laid plate.
  10. After cooling store it in an air tight container and proceed with the remaining plantain.

My Tip:

Do not throw away this skin; you can make very tasty sabzi with it.
