Nendran Vazhakkai Chips/Raw Banana Chips

Today's recipe is a simple and crunchy addictive snack which is my family's favorite,make it quite often.
Nendran chips is originally fried in coconut oil which is flavorful and it is very famous snack in Kerala.Whenever my Dad used to go for his business trip to Kerala got this flavorful chips.Now to the recipe.........


Raw banana/nendran kai3nos.
Turmeric powder/manjal podi1tsp
Coconut oil or any cooking oil for frying


                           Remove the top and bottom portion of the banana and make a long slit on the skin with a knife and peel the skin.
After peeling the skin wash the banana,wipe it with a tissue paper and slice it into thin slices using a slicer.Mix the salt and turmeric powder with 2tbs of water,keep aside.
Heat a heavy bottom pan with the oil in a medium flame and deep fry the slices till the sizzling sound stops.At this stage sprinkle 2 tsp of salt water to the chips.
Fry it till the bubbles settle down.Take it from the oil and drain it on an absorbent paper.Fry the rest of the banana slices the same way.Store it in an air tight container after cooling.
Serve it as a snack or an accompaniment for rice dishes.


  • The banana should be sliced evenly to get a nice crispier chips.
  • Fry one layer of slices in the oil,don't add add too many slices,otherwise the chips won't cook properly and get crispy.
  • Instead of using coconut oil any cooking oil can be used,for the flavor 2tbs of coconut oil can be added along with the oil.
  • If you want to spice up sprinkle some chilly powder or black pepper powder after drained it from the oil.
  • Do not peel the skin with the peeler and don't reuse the oil,it will be salty.
