Raw Banana Chips | Kele ke Chips | Vrat ka Khana

Re-posting the recipe with Video attached.

It is October 5th, and Navratri is knocking the door. It is believed that these nine days, there is this positive energy all around and it is the best time to cleanse ourselves. The

Vedas have stated

that there is nothing better than going “Satwik”, Satwik bhojan is the best thing we as human beings can do to us.

We do believe in this fast world it is not so easy to turn into “Satwik bhojan” but Navratri surely calls for it. Nine days of absolute purity yields a blossomed time all year around.

The first recipe following here is Raw banana chips. These are easy to make and does not require a hell lot of ingredients. Without further ado, lets begin.

Kele ke Chips | Raw Banana Chips for Navratri | Vrat ka Khana
Recipe type: Savory Snacks
Cuisine: Indian
Serves: 4
 
Ingredients
  • Raw Banana - 4
  • Senda Namak - 1 Tsp / Normal Salt - 1 Tsp
  • Black pepper powder - To Taste
  • Turmeric - ½ tsp {Optional}
  • Oil/Ghee for frying
Instructions
  1. Wash and peel the raw bananas. Dunk them in some water. Slice them in bowl of water which has turmeric and salt.
  2. Heat up oil/ghee. Use ghee for aromatic flavors. Fry them in low flame for crispy and light texture.
  3. Strain when slightly golden and sprinkle sendha namak and black pepper powder.
Notes
Make sure you fry them in medium-low flame, frying them in hot oil would cause them to go soggy after they come in room temperature.
Strain them when they are golden or else they will burn. The colour is anyway going to enhance once they get into room temperature

Momos Simply Veg | Appetizers

Veg Momos, aka Steamed Dumplings is one such thing that makes everyone crave from toddlers, to teenagers like me, to youth like my sissy, and adults like my dad. 😀 And, every time we make it, we literally have a hard time rolling so many dumplings as we all love it so much. Jokes apart, Momos is traditionally a Tibetan dish, years after its popularity in the Tibet people in Nepal, Bhutan and North-eastern India have claimed it to be their dishes. No offences here guys. We respect food, let it come from anywhere. So, the below version is a simple recipe which you may find similar to some of the Veg Momo stalls in Darjeeling!

Guests coming in? Well, you can definitely make it for the appetizer. (Disheartening fact, Darjeeling street vendors sell 7-8 of these at INR 10-15 bucks, crazily low priced)
