Banana chips

Posted on June 29, 2009. Filed under: Snacks | Tags: , , |

Use deep green-coloured bananas for this recipe. As bananas turn yellow the starch they contain becomes sugar and they will not crisp up in the same way when fried

Timings :

Preparation time: less than 30 mins

Cooking time: 10 to 30 mins

Ingredients :

  • vegetable oil, for deep frying
  • small handful small (unripe) green bananas, cut into thin slices
  • ½ tsp water
  • ¼ tsp turmeric powder
  • ¼ tsp salt
  • chilli powder, to taste

Method :

1. Heat the vegetable oil in a deep, heavy-based saucepan until a breadcrumb sizzles and turns golden-brown when dropped in it. (CAUTION: hot oil can be dangerous – do not leave unattended.)

2. Add the slices of banana to the pan and, using a slotted spoon, try to separate the chips from each other as they fry, otherwise they will stick together.

3. Mix together the water and turmeric powder in a small bowl.

4.When the banana chips are beginning to become crisp and the edges are golden-brown, carefully add the turmeric-salt powder to the pan. Take care as the oil will sizzle when the water is added. Stir gently to combine. When the banana chips are golden-brown and cooked through, remove them with a slotted spoon and drain on kitchen paper.

5. Sprinkle over chilli powder, to taste, and serve at once.
