  • 3 Plantains smaller
  • pinch Salt
  • 1 1/2 Teaspoon Turmeric Powder
  • 1 Teaspoon Red Chili Pepper
  • 3 Tablespoon Oil


  • Peel the Bananas and cut them into thin slices, the thinner the better so that they get crunchy after frying.
  • In a bowl combine the Salt, Turmeric and Chill Powder and drag the banana slices all through the spice mix so that they are covered both sides with all the masala goodness.
  • Heat up a pan with the Oil and wait till it is hot. Once it has the desired temperature, take down the heat to a lower level and carefully slide in the banana chips, one batch at a time. Fry on both sides 2-3 mintues till they are golden brown.
  • Keep the cooked chips on a kitchen paper towel to get rid of excess oil.
  • You can store them in a airtight container a few days.


The Banana Chips cook very quickly, so be careful that they don't burn. Keep an eye on the cooking process.
