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

  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.

  23. my chips are not crunchy dont know why..
    please tell

  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.

  25. How do we bake the chips in microwave?

  26. I have a baker friend who suggested the below recipe ... Take a utensil with water & vinegar, bring it to boil & add potato slices. Boil it for 3-4 MNS. Remove them & spread it for drying. It has to dry completely. Then deep fry them. This method actually gave me perfect chips. Need to have some patience to prepare them

  27. Thanks for the receipe.. kindly tel me how to avoid the excess oil after frying?

    1. Dry it well before frying by patting it with a towel. Less moisture- less absorption of oil.
