Kifayti Snacks: Homemade Crispy potato chips

My Facebook and Instagram is all filled with delicious homemade food, all made during this Corona lockdown phase! It feels so nice more so, as people have taken it seriously and in their stride. Hopefully, we win against this monster soon and we get back to normal pace of life ASAP. So few interesting food and their wonderous snaps like chop, chips and other delicious snacks, intrigued me to try my hands with a few of them. But that beautiful capsicum chop cannot be made now as my pantry is running out of Besan. If you know any substitute do let me know please. Now, there is one more option – to make Homemade Crispy potato chips like our very own Uncle Chips πŸ˜€. Irony is that inspite of thinking so many times of making it, I never had the opportunity to actually try my hands at it. Now after I finished my work from home, I sat with the potatoes to make Homemade Crispy potato chips. I was already tired, and dear hubby pulled out the blades of our Chopper – slicer Box and made the slices. And you know the recipe is that easy……… Still just letting you know the recipe that you already know but with a few details to make Homemade Crispy potato chips as perfect as possible!

  • Now, for deep frying, heat enough oil in Wok
  • Add some salt to the oil
