Vazhakkai chips / Plantain chips!!!!

Hi guys!!!

This week when I went grocery shopping I was surprised to see the plantain of the famous Kerela Nentharampazham in the store. Immediately, I picked up 2 of them and decided to prepare chips with them. Plantain chips are the only variety of chips I like. I have never been crazy about potato or tapioca chips at any time.

This crunchy and tasty chips is prepared with just a couple of ingredients always available in the kitchen. The usual cooking oil can be used to fry the chips but to ensure that you reproduce the actual Kerala taste use coconut oil.

Now lets see the recipe.


Plantain - 2
Coconut oil - as required to fry
Turmeric powder - 1 tsp
Salt - 1 tsp


1. Peel the plantain and place it in a bowl with warm water.
2. Heat the coconut oil with salt and turmeric powder. Wait till the oil reaches smoking point.
3. Now thinly slice the plantain directly into the oil. Let it cook for a couple of minutes and turn over and cook evenly.
4. Sample for crispiness and remove from oil. Continue the same procedure till you finish the entire batch.

Serve with hot tea!!!

I am sending this recipe for the Kerala Kitchen Event - Feb 2012  hosted at Roshan's Cucina!!!
