Sun-dry Potato Chips

Hello friends posting after long time since i had some personal work. But am back with this amazing recipe of sun dry potato that my mom use to make. I have very fond memories attached to these chips. They are crisp and light you bake them or deep fry and kids will just love it.

Here goes the recipe

Ingredients:-

  1. 4 large potatoes washed cleaned and wiped dry
  2. Water to boil potatoes and some more for rinsing
  3. 1/8th tsp alum
  4. salt according to taste

Method:-

Peel potatoes and slice them as thin as you can and place them in water so that they don’t get the brown color.

Now in a big vessel bring water to boil and add in salt and alum. To this add the sliced  potatoes. Adding alum makes the potatoes crisp and helps retain the color even after frying.

Now cook this potatoes till they are firm. they shouldn’t be over cooked.Now drain this water and wash it 2-3 times. Pat them dry and let them dry under sun for 2-3 days or till they are dry and crisp.

Store them in airtight jar and fry as and when needed.
