Masala Potato Chips. Who don't like potato chips, I think it is favorite of all. There is a potato chip store near my apartment and every time crossing it, i couldn't stop myself from thinking "how do they make it so tasty". One day i asked the person who works there, what all you add to make chips so tasty. He said you can stand here for few minutes and then see what we add... Then i was eagerly waiting there for couple of minutes to see what he adds. I kept staring him without even blinking my eyes, thinking that if i close my eyes then he will add something. But he added nothing except salt water. I was surprised by seeing that, just by adding salt water to frying potato they make chips so tasty.... I had no words to say, i just said "thank you" for telling me your secret... I had often tried making potato chips, but i use to add salt after frying, because of that only i never got that wonderful taste like chip stores.
I followed the same method what he had showed me and my chips were crispy and tasting exactly the way i get it from him... I added red chilly powder and chat masala to make it little chat patta.. This is a very simple method to make it at home and get the taste of store and healthy too... When you can make it at home why to buy from out..
5 medium potato
1/4tsp red chilly powder
1/8tsp chat masala.
Peel and soak the potato in cold water for 10minutes.
Then slice the potato in slicer and again soak them in cold water for at least 15 to 20minutes. (Soaking potato in cold water helps to remove the starch and make the chips more crispy)
In a small bowl add salt and 2tbsp water and dissolve salt completely and set aside.
In a deep frying pan, add oil, when oil is hot, deep fry the potato, when they are half done then sprinkle few drops of salt water. Fry chips to lite golden brown. (fry them in batches)
Then take them out on a paper towel and sprinkle red chilly powder and chat masala, and mix them gently and allow them to cool completely..
Then you can store them in a air tight container for a week.
Masala Potato Chips is ready..
