This post is about How to make potato chips at home / Potato chips recipe with step by step pics and a short YouTube video. I usually make it for get-togethers, for my kids class party and sometimes as a sidedish for sambar or variety rice too.
First, peel the skin of potato and rinse well. Keep immersed in water, till use to avoid de-colouration.
Next slice the potato using a slicer and rinse again.
Keep the sliced potato immersed in ice water for 20 minutes. This step helps to remove the starch content in the potato and yields crispy chips. Drain the water completely and spread the potato slices in a kitchen cloth. Dry it for 20 minutes (keep it under a fan). Ensure there is no water content in the potato slices.
Heat oil in a pan / kadai, drop 1 potato slice in the oil, if it raises immediately, the oil temperature is perfect for frying. Drop the slices in the oil, one by one. Don't overcrowd the oil, fry it batches only. Fry well on both sides, once the shhhhh sound ceases, take the chips out of the oil and drain it in the kitchen towel.
Finally sprinkle with salt, pepper powder and toss it well. Store it in an airtight container.
