  21. i fry potato slice but all chips reddish (red colore) please tell any white frying tips

    ReplyDelete
  22. The chips must have turned reddish because the oil temperature must have been too high. Heat the oil first, drop a single potato slice, if it raises to the surface immediately, reduce the flame to medium and then fry the potato slices. Oil should not be too hot.

  24. Himanshu - If there is moisture, then the chips will not be crunchy. So you should wipe the potato slices well with a cloth and then spread it on a cloth for sometime to dry.
