Homemade Potato Chips

Ingredients

  • 2 KG.- big size Potatoes
  • Pinch of – Alum or Fitkari
  • Water as required
  • For seasoning
  • Salt
  • Red chilli powder

Process

  • Take big size potatoes and peel them.
  • Take a grater or chips maker, then slice them. You will get plainand thinly slice chips.If you want you can follow this process to get plain chips.
  • But if you like chips with net or Lattice Chips / Criss Cross Chips / jaali vali chips
  • then in a slicer you will find segregated lines, on this we need to grate in a criss cost method, check this process in our video.
  • After slicing remove chips from water and wash them in fresh water 2-3 times.And again put them into water so they won’t change colour.
  • Now boil water in a big vessel ,when it is boiling then add potato slices. Slightly push them .
  • Take fitkari ,I have tied it with a thread or you can take small amount of fitkari powder .
  • Move fitkari in boiling water 2-3 times then remove it. And take out any discard from water.
  • After 5-7 minutes when chips are done ,Check it with finger and thumb ,it should not be very soft or too hard.
  • When it is done then immediately take out chips in a strainer.
  • And quickly put them dry separately on old saree, chips should not be attached .So dry chips one by one evenly.
  • Keep them under the sun, when they are dry completely then store them in air tight container for a year itself.
  • Whenever you want to eat chips, then heat oil ,in medium hot oil fry chips and take out quickly.
  • And quickly sprinkle some salt and red chilli powder and serve it a cup of tea. Enjoyyyy 🙂
  • Note:-
  • Reason to add fitkari is , it clears the water and keep chips white.
  • You can dry chips under the fan too.
  • Do not add salt while boiling chips, if you do so then while frying chips will be red in colour.
  • Boil chips in small batches ,after 2-3 uses then change the water.
