POTATO CRISPS

Photobucket

Yesterday's lunch was a simple tangy Chamagadda

pulusu with sambar and these crispy's as side accompanients. Generally Papad/My

Home-Made Potato chips Click Here For My Home-Made Potato Chips recipe would

be on our plate ,but this time i wanted something different.... What?????

Vadiyalu..NO NO we dont make them(not that we hate them....but being from

telangana we dont make them at home...even my maa/nani are so lazy to do those

and pass on the recipe to us:) ).So i thought of going with potato and adding some

flavorful spices to it making it very simple and easy to make.....Usually the thing is, i

hate to deepfry anything so mostly look for some baked recipes......


INGREDIENTS:

Russet Potato------------------2 large ones

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

Pepper------------------------to taste

Chilli powder-------------------1/4 tsp

Oregano,Rosemary------------bit sprinkled on top before baking

Cooking Olive-Oil --------------to spray



DIRECTIONS:


1.Wash and peel the Potato and divide it into two equal halves longitudinally.

2.Start working with each half in batches.

3.Slice them lengthwise into long even strips.Make sure that all the strips are cut out evenly.

4.When done place them in ice-water for 20-30mins witha little bit of salt.

5.Preheat the oven to 325degreeF for 3-5 mins.

6.Drain off the water and pat the soaked strips with a dry paper towel.See that no water is left.

7.Transfer to mixing bowl and add salt.pepper,chilli powder and mix properly.

8.Spray little oil over a large baking plate and place the spice coated strips equally spaced on the plate.Make sure that they donot touch each other.

9.After assembling them spray little more oil on the top and place in the oven.

10.Bake for 8-10 mins then remove ,then turn them a little bit and place back.

11.Bake for another 5-8 mins till they are done as you desired.Some people like them to be deep-fried and some prefer it light.So depending on your choice bake for less or more than the specified time.But dont forget to keep an eye on them for the second time.

12.When done place in paper towel to remove any excess oil for 2-3 mins and have them as they now are ready to be served.

Thanks for answering...
Reply to your query about the ice cream maker...
You could definitely try freezing without the ice cream maker, but it may not be that creamy.
Alternatively, you could freeze, take it out and blend it in a blender, put it back in the freezer, do this step 3 to 4 times. It might help with the creaminess. No harm trying! It is ice-cream anyway :)
