Banana Chips is a very easy vegetarian snack recipe which are normally prepared from raw bananas. In fact, there are two kinds of Banana Chips, one is sweetened and the other salty. Here in Mauritius, we mostly eat the salty ones. Raw bananas are available all over the year and I prepare the salty one most of the time. We normally eat it with rice accompanied with pulses but it is mostly appreciated as a snack.

Banana Chips Recipe
6 Raw Bananas
1 teaspoon of Turmeric Powder
Salt to taste
Oil for deep frying
Chilli Powder to taste
First, you have to wear a pair of gloves so that your hands don't get stained by the raw bananas.
Peel the raw bananas and put them in a vessel along with water, salt and turmeric powder so that they don't change into dark colour. The turmeric will give them a yellowish texture.
Cut the bananas into fine slices or you can even grate them too.
Put a few at a time in hot oil, otherwise, they will stick together and you won't have them well cooked.
Deep fry until crisp.
Remove and drain them on a tissue paper so as to take out the excess oil.
Let the slices cool down and then add salt and chilli powder.
You can store them in an air-tight container so that they don't loose their crispy feel.
