Senai Kizhangu Varuval | Home Style Yam Chips | Gluten Free and Vegan Recipe

Home Style Yam Chips

Hi Supermoms,

Making home made vegetable chips has always been in our tradition. Vegetable chips are a part of our wedding menu too . There will be a raw banana/plantain chips or yam chips that will be served along with appalam . The yam can be either cut into tiny cubes or can be sliced into thin squares. You can decide the shape of the chips. 

Thin slices helps the yam to cook faster and be crispier for a longer time. Soaking the yam in lemon juice helps to prevent itching of the throat . Also use yam that is a couple of days old .

Instead of deep frying you can add oil in a wide pan and shallow fry them too. Though this might take double the time to cook . I have not added any spice or salt to this recipe as the chips are tasty as is. But you can always add spice powder and mix.

You can check out the health benefits of eating yam in my Senai Kuzhambu Recipe.
