Hello Summer you are here and I am making the best of best out of SUNNY sun. Sounds so Crazy and Good too. Every year this summer doubles up my time in kitchen preparing things that lasts longer, need lot of patience and sunlight. If you ever visit my place in this season, you will find me pickling mangoes inside the kitchen or drying the papads, fryums on the terrace. I probably must have been doing this for years, but now as a food blogger it’s a creative process that demands variations and adaptations of recipe. It doesn’t let me to hang on with same old fryum or pickle any more.
My summer 2015 has started with these addictive, crispy and light sun dried potato chips that are absolutely simple and easy to prepare. If you are like me, who thinks in all possible ways to keep the kids away from store bought chips then sun dried potato chips can be the best alternative. Home made chips with no added preservatives can possibly be your kids future favourite. So you have potatoes lying in your pantry and scorching SUN is just outside, let’s begin.
I used potato slicer to make these awesome, good looking sun dried potato chips. You can use your knife too to do this, but I recommend the slicer as it would give uniform and evenly thick chips. Make sure as you slice potatoes, the chips are falling down in to water. Otherwise potato chips would get ugly dark color in them.
The chips remain in boiling salt water for few minutes so that they absorb salt in them. From there, spread the chips on a cotton cloth and dry them under sun at least for 3 days or until dry. Deep frying these potato chips, sprinkling your favourite spice like chat masala or red chilly powder and snacking on at any winter or rainy day would be rocking, out of the world offer.
