Tips

  • Other way to make banana chips – add salt and turmeric powder directly in a cup of water and keep it aside. Next, heat the oil and add the sliced pieces of banana (without turmeric and salt coat) in oil. When chips get partially fried then sprinkle the water of ‘turmeric-salt’ directly in the oil. But you need to be more careful using this method as water spatters and huge sound emits.
