3 Ingredient Vegan + Gluten Free Banana Chips

Banana Chips is a salty, cripsy and irresistible snack that can be prepared using just 3 ingredients in less than 20 minutes and gets over in no time. This healthy snack is vegan and gluten free.


You’ll Need:


  • Raw Banana – 2
  • Salt – 3/4 tsp
  • Oil – for frying

Instructions:

Step I

  1. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan for frying. Let the flame be between medium to medium high. I use a 6 inch deep pan and I fill it with about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil.
  2. Prepare the salt solution: Dissolve 3/4 tsp of salt in 2 tbsp of water. You may vary this amount depending on how salty you like your chips to be.
  3. Peel the skin of the bananas and cut them into thin slices. Mine were about 0.5 mm to 1 mm thick. Thicker slices would require longer frying times to crip up, so adjust accordingly.

Step II


  1. Heat oil in a deep bottom pan for frying. Let the flame be between medium to medium high. I use a 6 inch deep pan and I fill it with about 1 1/2 to 2 inches of oil.
  2. Prepare the salt solution: Dissolve 3/4 tsp of salt in 2 tbsp of water. You may vary this amount depending on how salty you like your chips to be.
  3. Peel the skin of the bananas and cut them into thin slices. Mine were about 0.5 mm to 1 mm thick. Thicker slices would require longer frying times to crip up, so adjust accordingly.
  4. Once the oil is hot, drop few slices of bananas, and using a slotted spoon stir it every now and then so that they fry evenly. Do not overcrowd the pan.
  5. You will notice that the color starts changing and the chips start floating. At this point add 1 tsp of salt solution *(check more details in tip section).
  6. You will see that when you add salt water to hot oil it starts spluttering. Once the spluttering stops, remove the chips and transfer it to paper towel to absorb any excess oil.
  7. Repeat the process for reaming banana slices.
  8. Banana chips is ready. Let it cool down and if at all the chips remain, then store them in a air tight container. This will remain cripsy for at least 15 days.


Notes:


  • First and very important, be careful while frying these chips. Take special care while adding salt solution to hot oil, as it will cause extensive spluttering. Maintain safe distance from the pan, and definitely make sure that kids are not around when frying.
  • The salt solution is mainly added so that it gets distributed evenly. You can skip this and also sprinkle the salt at end after frying.
  • Oil must be between medium and medium high temperature. It should not be on high flame. Chips will turn black.
  • Do not over crowd the pan. it may not fry evenly.
  • For the pan size I used, I did total of 4 batches that is 1/2 banana slices at a time.
  • You may have to vary the amount of salt in salt solution depending on the saltiness desired.
