Yam chips

Have you heard of it?? I have neither had it earlier nor even heard about it. But my MIL packed a huge yam, when hubby visited home last week, which was home grown...without knowing all this, I bought half a kg of yam during my usual grocery store visit. Right now I have about 2 kgs of yam sitting in my kitchen. So thought of making some chips out of it...After some google search, figured out that the process is same as any other chips and hence went ahead and made it... They were as good as any other chips, just that they took little longer to cook.


Yam - about quarter kg, thinly sliced into the size of chips
Salt - about 1 tsp, dissolved in 1/2 cup water
Chilly powder - 1 tsp (optional)
Oil - for frying


1. Wash the yam pieces in water thoroughly and soak for about 15 min.
2. Drain the water and spread the pieces on a kitchen towel or newspaper.
3. Heat enough oil and when the oil is hot enough, add yam pieces in small batches. Do not overcrowd.
4. Sprinkle about a tsp of salt water into the oil.
5. Fry till both sides of the yam turn brown
6. Drain oil and turn them to a paper towel.
7. Sprinkle chilly powder, if using.
