How I miss the Indian potato chips... Here in the US, we have a great variety of potato chips but not a single flavour tastes like the simple potato chips with salt and chilli powder... However, I came up with a simple way to turn your store bought potato chips to the Indian style ones...(inspired by a food network program)
Buy a big pkt of classic salted potato chips of any brand. Transfer it to an open oven safe bowl. Sprinkle lots of chilli powder and mix it evenly. Toss it in a 375 F preheated oven. Bake for 10 min. You just want the surface oil on the chip to absorb the chilli powder, so that you don't feel like u r eating raw chilli powder :) Indian potato chips ready!!
Crispy chips from the scratch:
Slice potatoes into thin slices and soak them in a huge bowl of ice cold water for atleast 30 min. You can even leave it for 3 hrs... The excess starch should get into the cold water. Drain them and pat dry with a towel. Make sure there is no excess moisture. Deep fry. Add salt and chilli powder..toss it and chips is ready!!
You can follow the same recipe for sweet potatoes/ raw banana etc..
