Banana Chips Recipe
Fried Banana Chips

  • 5-6 Raw Banana (peeled)
  • Coconut Oil/Vegetable Oil for Deep Frying
  • ¼ tsp Turmeric Powder
  • Salt To Taste
  • Absorbent Cloth
  • Chip Slicer
  • Firstly, slice the banana to an even thickness. This is important, since thick slices will be undercooked. The best way to obtain an even thickness is to use a chip slicer.
  • Put these slices in a pan filled with water and add turmeric to it and let them soak for about 10 min.
  • Now, drain the water and dry the slices by transferring them on the absorbent cloth.
  • Heat oil in a pan and add the banana slices to the hot oil. Deep fry for 2 min or until the chips are crispy. Add a few slices at a time.
  • Mix ½ tsp water and ¼ tsp salt and add this mixture to the oil. This makes the chips crispier.
  • Lift the chips from the pan and place on an absorbent tissue so that the extra oil gets soaked.
  • Banana chips are ready to be consumed.
  • If you want to store the chips, you can keep them inside an air tight container.
Baked Dried Healthier Banana Chips

  • 5-6 Raw Banana (peeled)
  • Chip Slicer
  • Food dehydrator
  • Fresh Lemon Juice
  • Water
  • Peel and slice the banana uniformly.
  • In a bowl of water mix the lemon juice.
  • Dip the banana slices in the bowl and lay them on the dehydrator tray, making sure not to overcrowd them.
  • After one hour check whether your banana slices have dehydrated completely or not. If they have not, then give another half an hour.
  • The chips will be darkened slightly and leathery. They will be crispy when dry.
  • While peeling and slicing the banana, apply coconut oil (or any vegetable oil) to your palm, to avoid stains on the fruit.
  • Peel the banana and slice it when you are about to start cooking. Sliced banana kept for a long time will get a dark colour and lose the fresh taste.
  • Salt should be mixed well.
  • If you forget to add the turmeric powder while soaking the slices you could always add to the oil.
  • While making the dried banana chips, read up the manufacturer’s instruction for the ideal setting to your dehydrating machine.
