Everyone loves potato chips, but we all know that too much of it is not good for us. Now there is a healthier way of preparing it. No need to worry about the grease. We can now enjoy chips with less guilt. You can also try this recipe with other vegetables to create healthy snacks.
Eat the chips with dip or pour some sour cream on it to make it more interesting.
6 large potatoes
Spice of your choice (cayenne, paprika, garlic salt)
Wash the potatoes and scrub them well. Slice it into paper thin pieces and soak it in water with a dash of salt, so that it does not turn dark.
In a deep frying pan or deep fryer, heat oil in medium low heat. Do not forget to test if the oil is hot enough. We want our chips crisp.
Pat dry the potatoes using a paper towel, to avoid oil splatter.
Once the oil is hot, deep fry the potatoes for 2-3 minutes or until lightly browned. Transfer it to a colander or plate with paper towels to drain the oil. Season it with salt and other spices you desire.
If you don’t want to fry the potatoes, you can cook them in a microwave oven. Grease a covered tray or microwavable dish/ container. Place the potatoes in the container in batches. Season it with salt and desired spices. Microwave on high for 5 minutes or until the chips curl slightly and the edges turn brown. Repeat the same process for the remaining potatoes.
Serve immediately or store in a sealed container.
