  • How to Make Homemade Potato Chips:

    1. Fill a large container or clean plastic basin or bucket with cold water.
    2. Peel, drop thin chips with a potato slicer (thinnest blade) and immerse into water.
    3. Cover and keep aside overnight.
    4. In a large 10 litre vessel, heat plenty of water.
    5. Bring to a complete boil, add salt and 6-7 pinches of alum, powdered.
    6. Drain out potato chips and drop into boiling water.
    7. Boil till chips change colour and are just a shade tender.
    8. Do not allow to overcook or they will break on draining.
    9. Undercooking will make the chips blackish on drying.
    10. Drain out water completely.
    11. Spread sheet in the hot direct sun and peg down with some weights on all corners.
    12. Spread out the chips in single layer all over the sheet.
    13. Allow to dry till brittle.
    14. When all moisture evaporates, heap them indoors on another sheet.
    15. Bring the chips to room temperature and store in a clean dry airtight container.
    16. To proceed:
    17. Heat oil in a frying pan till hot.
    18. Put in 10-12 chips, allow to expand.
    19. Drain quickly with perforated large spoon.
    20. Put on absorbent kitchen paper to soak excess oil.
    21. Season with salt and pepper, chaat masala, or paprika, as desired.
    22. Toss lightly to coat all chips.
    23. Serve.
