Banana chips or plantain wafors recipe - Banana chips is an easy to prepare snack which is very tasty. When I serve some crispy snacks with hot cup of tea or coffee to my family and friends, it gives me immense pleasure and satisfaction. Chips are also called as wafors. In Kerala, Tamil Nadu and some parts of Karnataka, a variety of banana called nendra baale (plantain) is used to make these chips. But, here I don't get that variety. So, without any option, I make chips with banana which is easily available in the vegetable market. In comparison, chips prepared with nendra banana is more tastier than the chips prepared with other varieties of banana.
