Green banana chips


Note – when I wrote this post in 2013 it was for two dishes.  An eggplant milk curry and banana chips. It’s now 2 of Feb 2016 and I have just updated the photos for both these dishes and checked the recipe. I have split them into two different posts. Link coming.

வாழைக்காய் பொரியல். Home grown green bananas fried up into chips – served as a side dish (kinda like papadams). Delicious!

1 green banana
1/4 tsp chilli powder
1/4 tsp salt
1 cup vegetable oil for deep frying

Vallakai poriyal -7

  1. Use a potato peeler to remove the banana peal. My mum saves the skin for varai.
  2. Thinly slice banana. My mum uses a greater as per the photo.

  4. Heat up the oil.
  5. Deep fry till banana in medium heat is golden in colour and crispy.
  6. Serve.
  7. Save the remaining oil for future use.

  1. I cooked this today for lunch and it was quick, easy and delicious; thank you to you and your mum.

    One thing I noticed is that you’ve omitted onions in step 2 of the method. I’m sure everyone will assume just as I did and add them in with the rest of the veggies, but given the rest of your site is so thorough I thought’d I’d mention it.
