PLANTAIN CHIPS

Photobucket

INGREDIENTS:


Plantain-------------3 firm and unripe

Turmeric------------1/4 tsp

Salt------------------to taste

Coconut oil-----------5 tbp

DIRECTIONS:

1.Peel the plantain outer part completely along with any white fibreous part attached to it else that part appears black after baking.

2Just before using it rub some oil over your palms to avoid blackening.

3.Use either a mandolin or a knife to slice them into thin discs.Dont slice all the three at a time.Make them in batches.

4In a large bowl take cold water and add turmeric and place the sliced disc in them for 15-20 mins.

5.Then remove few and wipe off the water with paper towel one by one or few without spoiling them

6.Take enough slices and add enough oil+salt to them to be well coated and mix thoroughly.

7.Place the slices on a slightly oiled baking plate and bake in oven for 25-28 mins at 325degreeF.

8.If you make them too thin just be sure to remove before the time. While you have the first batch in oven prepare by making second batch.

9.The plantain chips tastes good with coconut oil only......Can try with ordinary veg oil but it doesn't give you exact kerala plantain chips flavor.
