Do you want to make homemade potato chips? First thing you have to get right is the potato variety. Trust me, I have tried with various types of potatoes here in Singapore earlier. I always ended up in dis coloured chips and tastes burnt. But have seen mom making potato chips in bulk with ease and pass it to me. So I finally got to record in person, what amma makes and I guess it purely depends on the potato variety.potato-chips

Last month has been super busy with couple of projects, guests and travel. I traveled to India and spent time with my parents for solid 12 days. It’s after almost 14 years. Yes! After marriage, I have neither been to my mom’s place alone nor stayed these many days after Aj’s delivery. So finally I managed to get some time to spend time with them and felt it is really important to spend some quality time with them. I hope I will do the same here after more often.

Coming to potato chips, please choose potato variety that doesn’t change colour when it is sliced. First try with a single potato in small quantity. If it turns out good, you can proceed to make it in bulk. Refer my video/ photo to see the potato variety I used, how it looks. Otherwise very simple and straight forward recipe without any complicated steps or ingredients.

Notes

  • Let the potato slices be even in thickness. Not too thin, not too thick. Check video for reference.
  • Regulate heat as and when needed. When you drop the potato slices, let the oil be hot. Towards end, you can try to put in medium to not let the chips change colour, yet turns crispy.
  • My mom always uses black pepper, you can use red chilli powder too.
  • If you are afraid of sprinkling salt solution (though it wont splatter over hands) you can skip that step and sprinkle salt along with pepper powder.
