The outcome will be so fabulous that your Raw Banana Wafers will earn you many compliments!
- Heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan on a slow flame.
- Meanwhile, make light slits on the raw banana peels at equal distance while taking care not to slit the raw banana.
- Trim both the edges of the raw banana and gently remove the peel using your fingers. Keep aside.
- Combine the salt and 4 tbsp of water in a small bowl and mix well till the salt dissolves completely. Keep aside.
- Slice half the raw banana using a slicer directly into the hot oil.
- Allow the banana slices to cook for ½ minute and then add 1 tbsp of salt-water mixture to the oil. Let this cook for ½ minute again and then gently mix well using a slotted spoon.
- Continue cooking the chips on a medium flame till they turn crisp from both the sides and the spluttering sound of oil-water stops, while stirring occasionally. Remove the banana chips from the oil and drain on an absorbent paper.
- Repeat the same procedure to make more banana chips in 3 more batches.
- Cool completely and serve or store in an air-tight container.
