Valakkai, plantain or green raw bananas? They sure are a delight when fried as crispy chips? Of course. For a matter of fact, anything fried (Lotus Root Chips, Crab Stick Chips & Fried Shrimp Wantons)? I bet you know what I am talking about? Valakkai Chips. For crunching as a snack or as a side for our rice meals. What is outstanding about my style to frying valakkai? I added curry leaves and shallots. Otherwise, its all equal as other valakkai chips.
3 (abt 400g) valakkai/plantain/raw bananas - peel the skin, slice thinly and soak in water.

3 sprigs curry leaves - shred/slice thinly

Salt for taste
