Banana Chips | Plantain Chips | Kerala Banana Chips | Snack Recipes

Crisp and bright yellow coloured authentic Kerala special banana chips or plantain chips

Crisp golden yellow hued banana chips mildly flavoured with coconut oil is a delicacy. Those perfectly fried chips have a sweet taste and the light pungency of coconut oil rounds up the flavours. Can I say that I like banana chips better than potato chips (may be not, I love them both!). I love making banana chips at home, it’s very quick and easy to make.
I generally don’t fry the entire lot in coconut oil (but please do if you want). I add a few drops of coconut oil for that unmistakable flavour in my banana chips. Ensure you have kept the frying pan with hot oil on the back burner, a sincere suggestion is to not do this with small children around. Although frying on medium heat will not splutter when turmeric solution is added, it’s good be precautious. ... “Banana Chips | Plantain Chips | Kerala Banana Chips | Snack Recipes”

Dosa/Dose is a very popular dish from South India eaten for breakfast. But these days, dosa has become an universal dish. It is famous all over the world and not just in India. They are thin and crepe like, made from rice and urad dal(black gram dal) batter.  See my dosa batter recipe to make dosas. This is a crowd puller dish and is one of the most prepared dishes in weddings and other parties along with bisi bele bhaat. You will definitely see a crowd around a dosa counter wherever it is, in parties, in dosa camps, in hotels, in street dosa vans which sell “99”, “100” and many more varieties of dosas. With the same batter you can make different variety of dosas. Masala dosa has potato (aloo) masala palya filling with red chutney (kempu chutney) smeared just before adding the masala. Red chutney is substituted with green mint/pudina chutney sometimes.
