Nendran Chips Recipe:

Nendran Chips recipe is from my husband and he is the one who is a master in making the perfect crispy non-oily banana wafers. It has been a year since I clicked this and here I am posting it with Onam approaching. The pure smell and flavour of coconut oil with these chips is heavenly and you will be tempted to try them when to travel to Kerala and Tirunelveli/Courtallam. Mom makes all variety of chips at just a breeze with the wooden traditional cutter.

Nendran Chips are crispy thin wafers made with raw Kerala banana in coconut oil. After making all the savouries for Krishna Jayanthi, I made some Ethakka Upperi and the bowl is all empty now. The chip is an integral part of Kerala Feast Meal(Onam Sadhya). From our childhood days, we love them and have relished the different variants from Nagercoil, Tenkasi and Kerala.

P.S:

The banana should be raw.

You can drizzle some salt and chilly powder after frying.

The secret behind crispy chips is to slice them very thin and fry them in hot oil until the shhh sound goes.

Don’t store when the chips are hot.

Be very cautious while you directly slice to oil.

You can slice them, dry them on a kitchen towel and then add it the oil instead of directly slicing into the hot oil.

The slices/the banana should not have even a drop of water. So dry them well.

Storing it in an airtight container with a tissue will keep it fresh and crispy for a week.
