How to make banana chips in coconut oil ?
Banana chips in coconut oil is the best in taste for every Keralite. Ethakka Upperi/ Banana chips is one of the crisp items served in any Kerala feast on the bottom left of the narrow part of the plantain leaf along with Sharkkara Upperi/ Sarkkara Varatty. Without this a traditional Onam Sadhya remain incomplete. Now a days, we can get these items from shops but for me it is a ritual to prepare Ethakka Upperi and Sharkkara Upperi at home. But this time, I couldn’t get raw banana as usual but I tried this Upperi with slightly ripen banana. Since it is not raw, I didn’t add salt to it. Try this and you will definitely like it.
