Having the aroma of frying something in coconut oil that brings me back to the smell of home, that is how i feel, now if you ask my husband he would say smell of coconut oil for him is like cookie smell it remind him of the coconut macarons they sell here ;-) when I add coconut oil to my hair he come and smell my hair and tell me it smells like cookies, thank God he doesnt eat my hair ;-)
Ok Now back to the cooking part that is how my kitchen was smelling when i was frying these banana chips.
If I close my eyes I would be back to Kerala or one of those Bus Stands or Railway stations were they sell freshly fried banana chips.
It is not like I get these Bananas in the local shops, last time when I went to the Asian store I saw them, and bought few and the next day itself I fried them and you can all guess who ate most of it , well I point the finger to myself.
These are easy to make actually there is no recipe.
2 to 3 green banana.
Coconut oil for frying ( if you dont like coconut oil, you can use any oil)
1 tsp of salt mixes witg few tbsp of water,
Peel the skin of the raw banana.
Heat the oil in a deep pan or wok, when the oil is hot slice the banana using a mandolin ( I slice them straight to the pan) if you dont want to do that you can slice them in plate and then add to the hot oil carefully)
I slices them very thin.
Stir now and then it only takes few or less minutes to fry them.
Now if you like salty chips you sprinkle a bit of salt water mix to the wok, I would suggest be very carefull as there will be full noise and splattering from the wok.
Stir few minutes and drain to a kitchen paper.
I fried them in few batches as if you fry them all together they wont get crispes they will be soggy.
It is after taking the pics and then writting the post I realized that I have this Banana chips in my blog, it was one of the earliest post I have years ago there is step by step picutures there only difference is that I sliced the banana much thinner in this nec chips post
