Plantain Chips/ Banana Chips/ kele ke chips

Today I post “plantain chips” under chips theme. In India, Plantain called by the name of Raw Banana or Kaccha Kela in Hindi. Plantain are mostly using for cooking bananas.
In this recipe, mostly I’m using one way to cook the chips i.e. frying method but you can use other methods also like bake in oven or microwave. You can slice the chip’s main ingredients in different shape like round, oval, long, ribbon whatever you like. Mostly I’m trying more simple and easy method which suitable for everyone with less equipment and ingredients.
Tomorrow 20 Feb., here we celebrate the occasion of Mahashivratri (day of Lord Shivaji). So we can also use or eat this chips in vrat or fast as a satvik bhojan.

Bananas are an excellent source of vitamin B6 and contain moderate amounts of vitamin C, manganese and potassium. Along with other fruits and vegetables, consumption of bananas may be associated with a reduced risk of colorectal cancer and in women, breast cancer and renal cell carcinoma. 

3 Plantain (raw banana)
Black pepper
Vegetable Oil for deep frying

Peel the raw banana and using the chip slicer or sharp knife, slice the banana into thin and long shape like (ribbons). Heat the oil in deep and heavy bottom vessel. Fry the chips in small amount until crispy and golden, near about 5-10 minutes. Remove the chips on kitchen towel and sprinkle salt and pepper. Serve with tea and any drink. You can keep the chips in air tight container for few days.
