Summary:

Kaya Varuthathu / Kerala Banana Chips is an integral part of the tradational Kerala meal called sadya. but the Banana Chips served at Kerala sadya / meal is usually not cut into big circles like it but quartered into smaller pieces and they may be thicker than it. These delicious crunchy snacks are very popular in Kerala. This amazing natural fresh Banana Chips can make easily in home. Unripe banana are used to make this chips. My wife Suja is expert to make it!. Amazingly she doesn't need a Slicer!!. She cuts the banana by a sharp knief!!. But my suggestion is, you please use a good sharp Slicer. Which make the cleaness and proper thickness of chips. Good Slicer slices quite thin tasty and crispy chips.
With regards...enjoy it.

Tips :

* Using the Slicer slice the banana and put it in the turmeric water for 2 minutes and dry it under the fan and frying the chips will make more tasty.
* Using the Slicer, slice the banana and directly do this into the hot oil is a easy step but the taste differs.
*Store banana chips in a airtight container.
* Coconut oil may get rancid quickly so that please use the chips fresh.
