Masala Potato Chips, Indian Spiced Chips

IMG_20130417_212255

I don’t know anybody that doesn’t like potato chips. People might choose to stay away from them, but I think most people like them. So, if you like potato chips, and you like Indian spices, then you will like these chips, I promise. Making potato chips at home is really easy, and it can be really fun deciding how to flavor them. Although they are fried, I have no doubt they are much healthier than store bought chips, especially without all the additives and crap. I flavored these Indian style, but there are so many endless options out there. Plain salt, malt vinegar and salt, onion powder, chives, etc. The selection really is endless. So be creative.

Ingredients:

  • potatoes, sliced paper thin, soaked in cold water for at least an hour. The longer the better.
  • oil for frying
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp garam masala powder
  • 1 tsp red chili powder
  • 1 tsp chaat masala
  • oil for frying

To Make:

If you have a mandolin, slicing is a breeze. If you use a knife, just make sure the slices are even. Once they have been soaked, lay them out on a towel and pat dry. Remove as much water as you can. IMG_20130417_205923

Heat oil to 360. Once correct temperature is reached, add the potatoes a little at a time. If you add a big batch, and there is too much water, then you will get into trouble. So add a little at a time. IMG_20130417_205931

Once the potatoes are added, use a spoon or something and stir them around, making sure they don’t stick together. Fry them until they are golden brown. Drain on a paper towel, and immediately sprinkle with seasoning. To make the seasoning, mix together the salt, garam masala, chaat masala, and red chili powder. You can also reduce the quantities to a half tsp each if you don’t have too many potatoes to season. If you have leftover seasoning, just save it for another meal. IMG_20130417_212302
