  42. " Plantain chips can be stored in an airtight container for a few days" - I'm sure they're not going to last that long. I wonder if the same can be made with bananas. Thanks for the visit.

  56. Banana or plantain chips are my all-time favorite snack! I remember when i travelled to Alleppey on work a few years ago, I bought 2-3 kilos of these chips!! They were freshly fried in coconut oil right in front of my eyes and I ate so much that I had a tummy ache :D
    and now u have shown such a simple way to make this at home :)
