Method for Purple Yam Chips

  • Wash and peel yam carefully. (Yam sometimes slips from hand that is why be very careful while peeling it.)

  • In a bowl full of water, use chips cutter to cut yam in thin slices.

  • Heat oil in a deep pan or kadhai.
  • Start deep-frying chips on low-medium heat, add slices one by one, so they do not stick with each other.

  • Remove chips on an absorbent paper.

  • Sprinkle salt and red chilli powder on chips, toss chips.

  • Crunchy and crispy yam chips are ready. Enjoy them with a cup of tea !

Note:

  • Yam comes from tuber just like potato, they starts changing color very quickly when exposed to air.
  • Sometimes after peeling yam, you may feel itching, wash your hands properly after chopping yam.
  • Sprinkle with black salt and have them as vrat food. You can sprinkle chips with any spice of your choice.
  • For crispy and crunchy chips I have used chips cutter, you can cut them according to your preference of thickness.
