Potato Chips is the only snack I think which does not need any introduction. The crispy salty potato chips are liked by people of all ages. Microwave Potato Chips are as crisp and light as regular potato chips but with zero guilt.
Many a times we have to stay away from this favourite snack of ours when we are trying to eat healthy or trying to keep our kids away from junk food because of the load of calories it brings along. With this low oil microwave potato chips recipe you will no longer have to crave for these crispy yummy potato chips. You can enjoy them anytime without feeling guilty.
Some of the key points which have to be taken care off in the preparation phase are-slicing of potatoes, rinsing them with cold water and towel drying them later. If the potato slices are not thin enough, you will not get that light and crispy texture. Also, rinsing the slices is important step as it helps in getting rid of excess starch from potatoes which is crucial to make the potatoes crispy.
I have sprinkled some sea salt on the slices before keeping them in microwave. You can even add some chilly powder if you like them on spicier side. Although I like my potato chips without any accompaniments but you can serve them with any of your favourite dips or sauces.
Each batch of potato chips takes up to 6 minutes to prepare. So you will get small-small batches of chips each time but I would say the effort is all worth it when you are trying to avoid ready made potato chips sold in market which are deep fried and loaded with so much of salt and preservatives.
