Raw Banana Wafers / Plaintain Chips

One day my son came back from school and told me mom, could you make yellow chips for me? its yummy and I like it, I said ok but its potato chips or something else. He said its not potato chips , I never had it that kind of chips before. So I told him ok when ever  or where ever you see that chips in stores let me know. So one day he was with me for Indian grocery and he saw banana wafers, he says mom look at that yellow chips  I was talking about. That time I know that he had those wafers in the school as snack and he loved it. So I brought one small packet and it was very costly but I wanted to make sure that he is talking about same chips, I did not wanted to do all the work and in the end he said that I was not talking about that. Gladly him and me both were on same page so I told him that ok finish this packet for now and I will make more for you. So when I saw raw bananas in the market, I remembered that I promised him something and I got 4 bananas. I made it and I liked it too. You can make it two ways, you can sliced it and put it in salt water as we do for potato chips , then dry it and then fry it or do the easy way, directly in the oil sliced it. I went for second one. I sliced it directly in the oil and fry it. So let me show you the recipe.

on other note, my recipe Authentic Falafel Balls  wins Swathi's Giveaway. Thank you so much Swathi, Lisa and Susan for a wonderful giveaway.

Ingredients :

4 Raw Bananas
oil to fry preferably coconut oil for authentic taste otherwise regular oil is fine.
Salt and pepper as per taste


Heat the oil in deep pan.

Peel off the skins of the bananas.

When oil is hot, slice the bananas in oil. Be very careful with this. don't overcrowded the pan. let them give the space so it can cook nicely and crunchy. Turn the side and cook on other side too.

Take it out on dish which has paper towel in it.

Sprinkle salt and pepper on it while it is still hot.

Then go ahead and fry another batch. Finish all the bananas and once you finish frying , sprinkle it with salt and pepper so it sticks.
Enjoy it as it is or with cup of tea or coffee.
