Lays style ! Potato chips

Homemade potato chips recipe . Now who wouldn't want a bagful of potato chips and i wish mine doesn't get over at all .
It's been some days since i got this sad news of my classmates' departure from this world . At first i just thought I would let it go and will not wrote a post on it . But as  i was cleaning my waredrobe i found my old clips of our school photos and i felt really sad for her to die so young .. We were like a group of five best friends. Almost grew up together . It was only after 10 th std   we  went our ways . It left me thinking how little time we have in this world.  I even tell my kids i can't even 'see' the day and night change . How many more years will we get together with our kids , family ,friends ... only thing that one will leave behind is the legacy we leave with our dear ones... the good deeds and our imaan (faith) . So let the noor(light ) in our life increase with time by just doing a good deed everyday . 
Back to the recipe...
1 kilo ...2 or 3 kilos ... how much ever i make  there will  always be a fuss as to who gets more of it . Yes these potato chips are so addictive.  After a lot of trials i have got the perfect way to make them and yes it tastes much better  .. like Zehna says its organic umma!
Just follow a few pointers and you will get them perfect.

  • 1 kilo potatoes 
  • Sunflower for deep frying 
  • Salt 
  • 1 tablespoon chilli flakes


  • Chop the potatoes finely using the vegetable chopper blade so that you can get  really thin slices .
  • After which the chopped potatoes need to be soaked in clear filtered  water for 1 hour minimum.
  • Drain into a large siever and let all the water go off the potatoes . Leave it for 5 minutes. 
  • Heat a large kadai with oil . It should be medium hot and fry the potatoes in batches. 
  • Keep stirring .. yes this is the tiring part but beleive me its worth it.
  • Stir it regularly so that they fry evenly .
  • Once it starts to turn golden brown drain it off into tissue paper. 
  • Sprinkle salt and red chilli powder and toss well .
  • Now this  is purely according to taste.

The potatoes have to be soaked for 1 or more hours.  These will turn a bit rubbery and thats when its ready to fry.
Sunflower oil is  best for making these fries.
You have to keep on stiring till it turns golden brown .

  1. I am feeling sad reading your post... I remember when my sister was studying in college, her classmate had passed away suddenly and she was in shock for so many days. At our age, we think we can't die, but that's not the case. We are closer to death with every passing minute, may Allah protect us... Aameen...
    Coming to those potato chips, thank you for all the tips. Must try them since I have a mandoline at home and I must use them... hehe...
