  • pan


  • 4 Raw banana/Nenthrangai Long ones
  • For frying Oil
  • 1 teaspoon Turmeric powder
  • 1 teaspoon Salt
  • ¼ cup Water


  • Peel the banana and wash it. Pat, it dries on a kitchen towel and keeps it ready.
  • Add the turmeric powder and salt to the water and mix it well. Keep it aside.
  • Heat oil in a deep pan and once the oil heats up start slicing the bananas directly over the oil. Hold the mandolin with one hand and slice with the other hand. Keep a safe distance from the oil. Make sure you adjust the mandolin slicing width thin, to get even thin chips.
  • After slicing about ½ a banana, pour a teaspoon of the turmeric salt mixture into the hot oil. Make sure you spread it around and pour.
  • Mix it well and let the chips cook on medium-high heat.
  • Once the sizzle of the oil stops and the sides of the chips appear golden brown, remove them on a paper towel.
  • Repeat this with the rest of the chips and once completely cool, store them in an airtight container.
  • The chips will stay fresh for up to a couple of weeks (if it lasts that long).
  • Happy Munching!!!
