RECIPE: Microwave potato chips recipe

sankumApril 11, 2008


Potato - 3 to 4 (Depends on the quantity you are going to prepare)

granulated garlic powder - 1tsp

salt - 1tsp

chilli powder - 1 1/2tsp

Curry leaves - 4 to 5 (More flavour will be there if you roast the curry leaves before adding)

and of course....Microwave oven (lol!)


Peel the potatoes.

Slice the potatoes approximately 1/16-inch to 1/8 inch-thick. The measurements can vary but the main aim is the potatoes must be thin.

To remove potato starch, rinse the slices in a bowl of cold water; change the water twice.

Wipe the slices thoroughly with paper towels so that the moisture is removed.

Sprinkle sliced potatoes with the spices mentioned above in the ingredients or just leave them plain.

If you have a microwave bacon tray, place the sliced potatoes flat on the tray in a single layer. If you do not have a bacon tray, use a microwave-safe casserole dish.

Rub the inside of the dish with some olive oil or spray with non-stick cooking spray.

Cover with a microwaveable, round heavy plastic cover. Microwave on HIGH for 4 minutes; turn slices over and continue to microwave on high another 3 to 5 minutes. Potatoes are done when they are lightly browned (if they aren't browned, they won't get crisp).

NOTE: Cooking time could vary slightly, depending on the wattage of your microwave.

I love the microwave chips.They hold up much better than store bought when used with dips. The down side is, they take quite some time to bake and they don't all get done at the same time. You have to babysit and remove as they get brown edges. I go very lightly on the salt and add the garlic powder and smoked or Spanish paprika. It is important that the chips get rinsed and patted dry.
I just use the glass microwave turntable and I don't cover.
