Vazhakkai chips recipe | Raw banana chips recipe – Home-made chips recipe with step-by-step pictures and tips. How to make Vazhakkai chips at home.

I have seen my grandmother making big batches of Vazhakkai chips using homemade raw bananas. But personally, I have never tried it at home. It is a very simple and easy procedure only. I was craving for vazhakkai chips a few days back. Then asked my mom for the recipe and took pictures to share the recipe here.

It turned out very crisp and yum. This can be served with a meal or as a tea-time snack too. This is one of the totally addictive homemade snacks. My grandmother makes these chips in huge batches so effortlessly. Those days without even thinking about the calories, we used to munch on this.

Ingredients

  • 2 medium sized raw banana | Vazhakkai
  • ¼ tsp black pepper powder
  • ¼ tsp red chili powder
  • Salt as needed
  • Oil for deep frying

Instructions

  • Peel the skin of the raw bananas and slice them using a slicer (mandoline slicer)and immerse it in salt water for 10 minutes.
  • After 10 minutes, take out the slices and pat dry in a kitchen towel.
  • On the other hand heat the oil for deep frying.
  • When the oil is hot, carefully put in the dried and sliced raw bananas.
  • Fry it in batches. Do not put too much at a time. Also carefully put them and ensure everyone is separate. If the raw banana slices are together then it will get cooked evenly and will become soggy.

Notes

Just before frying take out the sliced raw bananas from water and pat dry. Else the color will become dull.
2. After frying and draining the excess oil in the kitchen towel, a minute later transfer it to a air tight container. Repeat this for all the batches . If the chips stays outside till the entire batch gets over it will loose its crispiness.
3. For a healthy version you can bake it instead of frying.
4. In my in laws place the cook mami will take out the skin of the vazhakkai ( as we do for ripe banana) and directly slice them in the oil.
5. though i have seen that I never tried as i don't think i can bear the heat!!
