Sun Dried Potato Chips

Potato chips are a favorite with almost every one of us.Instead of buying the commercial chips that are loaded with preservatives and other stuffs that are not so good for health, here is a recipe to enjoy potato chips all through the year, is home made, has no preservatives and of course as crunchy as the store brought chips. Did I tell you that this is my childhood favourite?

You need:

Salt to taste

  1. Slice the potatoes

2.Immerse them in water till the next step.

2.Meanwhile heat a large pot of water and add salt.When it comes to a rolling boil, turn off the heat and drain the potato from the water and add to the pot.Cover and keep aside for 15 minutes.

4. Drain completely.

5.Dry the slices in the sun. The slices should not stick with each other.

This usually dries in a day or two depending on the intensity of sun light. If it is not completely dry on the first day, bring it indoors in the evening, cover the tray / plate with a paper towel and keep it out to dry the next day.

Store in an air tight container . Deep fry and enjoy with lunch / as a snack...

Note :

Here is another version of Potato crisps that can be made using boiled and mashed potatoes.
