Picture of Banana Chipsticks

Banana chipsticks are tasty and crispy deep fried long banana slices..!!
they are simple banana chips made from raw bananas.

banana chipsticks make a perfect tea time snack or any time snack when you want to munch something,while watching a movie or reading a book..!

basically banana chips originate from south India..but is a very popular snack all over India.
I have seasoned the chips with salt,though you can use red chili powder or black pepper powder or your own choice of herbs and spices.

before you start,keep in mind that your fingers will also blacken while peeling and slicing the raw bananas.but thats a small price you have to pay to enjoy these homemade banana chipsticks..!! :D
i hope you like it..! :)
