Directions

Step 1

Peel of the plantain skins and immerse them in a bowl filled with water for 10 mts.

Step 2

Take the plantains out of water and pat them dry with a paper towel.

Step 3

Make thin slices(round ones) with a vegetable slicer.

Step 4

Mix turmeric and salt to 1/2 cup of water in a bowl and keep aside.

Step 5

Heat a wok with oil enough for deep frying.

Step 6

Once hot, add few slices at a time(don`t over crowd the pan as the oil temperature can drop and slices won`t cook evenly).

Step 7

When slices are cooked( the color changes and when touched with a spoon it won`t break apart)sprinkle a handful of turmeric water in the pan

Step 8

:-The oil is sure to bubble up , but do not worry, it comes down soon.

Step 9

Once the sizzling and bubbling sounds are over, using a slotted spoon take the chips out and drain the oil in paper towel.

Step 10

Repeat the above steps (1-8) for rest of the batch.

Step 11

Enjoy!!
