Green/Raw banana chips (upperi) is a must for Onam.
Banana chips is the most common snack you will find in Kerala....and finds its place in all the important occasions...it is easy to make and more healthy than potato chips.....just slit the green skin lengthwise and remove the raw banana from the skin preferably with your hand. Use a slicer to slice the banana.
Raw banana: 2 kg.
Coconut oil: ½ litre.
Salt: 2 tsp.
Turmeric: ½ tsp.
Chips cutter or slicer.
Wash the bananas and leave it to dry. Cut a slit lengthwise into the banana and remove the skin with your hands and keep it aside. . Mix water, salt, and turmeric and keep aside. Heat oil and using the chips cutter slice the bananas into the hot oil. When it is getting crisp put in 1 or 2 tsp of the salt solution and when the sizzling sound stops. Take out the bananas and place it on a tissue paper.
Note:I made in 4 batches.
