Snacking on banana chips means you'll get some nutritional value for your calorie investment. The chips are a good source of some essential vitamins, especially magnesium. Your body needs magnesium for energy production, cell-to-cell communication and DNA synthesis, an important part of cell growth.
It also works together with other minerals - like calcium and phosphorus - to make up bone and tooth tissue, which means eating foods high in magnesium may help keep your skeleton strong.
Recipe Cuisine: South Indian
Total Time (Minutes): 25
Salt - 1 tsp
Turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
Coconut oil for deep frying
Heat oil in a kadhai; once oil is hot, reduce the heat to medium. To find out if the oil is hot enough, drop a small piece of sliced plantain into the oil, if it raises to the surface immediately, then the oil is hot enough for frying.
Take a banana, pat it dry and then slice it off using a slicer.
Immediately after slicing, drop it into the oil, separating the pieces.
After a few seconds, add 3/4-1 teaspoon of turmeric salted water. Stir using a ladle, so that the plantain slices get cooked evenly.
Once cooked, the sizzling noise will stop and the oil will be clear.
Remove the chips with a slotted ladle and place them in a colander or paper towel to drain off excess oil, if any.
