How to Make Colocasia chips

  • Wash the colocasia thoroughly
  • Scrape the outer skin and wipe with a cloth (just to remove the stickiness).
  • Slice them into thin chips with the help of a chips slicer.
  • Collect them on a cloth or plastic sheet (do not put them in water).
  • Deep fry in batches in hot oil till golden yellow in colour.
  • (They may be sticky initially but when you put them in oil and stir, they will separate).
  • Remove to a deep pan or basin .
  • Mix salt and red chilli powder (mixed with crushed garlic)
  • Sprinkle this on chips while they are still hot.
  • Gently toss the basin so that the chips are well coated with the powders.
  • Variation:
  • You can use pepper powder in place of chilli powder.
  • Serve the chips with hot plain rice and sambar or any rice preparations
