Banana chips | Nendran chips

This recipe is from God's own country Kerala. Whenever I think of Kerala, the first thing to strike my mind is nendran chips | banana chips.Given me a choice, I would  pick chips and a masala tea for my evenings.Traditionally coconut oil is used for frying the chips as coconut is abundant there and also it gives a nice aroma but the choice of oil is yours.


Raw banana | nendran              4
Turmeric powder                     1 tsp
Salt                                          to taste
Oil                                           to fry       


In a bowl , mix salt and turmeric in 1/4 cup water and set aside.
Remove the top and bottom of a banana and with a sharp paring knife, slit the banana skin on all the sides &
peel off the skin.Use a mandolin /slicer and slice the banana into thin slices.
Heat oil in a heavy bottom pan and fry until just about to be done and add a tsp of salt& turmeric water in to the pan.You will hear some splashing sound but it will be gone quickly.Drain it in a paper towel and store it in a  air-tight container.
