Preparation Time: 1 mins
Cooking Time: 25 mins
Total Time: 26 mins
Makes 3 cups


2 large surti raw bananas
2 tsp salt
oil or coconut oil for deep-frying


1. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan on a slow flame.
2. Meanwhile, make light slits on the raw banana peels at equal distance while taking care not to slit the raw banana.
3. Trim both the edges of the raw banana and gently remove the peel using your fingers. Keep aside.
4. Combine the salt and 4 tbsp of water in a small bowl and mix well till the salt dissolves completely. Keep aside.
5. Slice half the raw banana using a slicer directly into the hot oil.
6. Allow the banana slices to cook for ½ minute and then add 1 tbsp of salt-water mixture to the oil. Let this cook for ½ minute again and then gently mix well using a slotted spoon.
7. Continue cooking the chips on a medium flame till they turn crisp from both the sides and the spluttering sound of oil-water stops, while stirring occasionally. Remove the banana chips from the oil and drain on an absorbent paper.
8. Repeat the same procedure to make more banana chips in 3 more batches.
9. Cool completely and serve or store in an air-tight container.
