blanching potatoes to make potato chips
in a bowl take 3 cups water + 1 tsp salt. stir so that the salt dissolves.
now peel and slice potatoes using a mandoline or a slicer directly in the bowl containing water.
slice all the potatoes and immerse them in the water.
then in a pot or pan, on a high flame bring to a rolling boil 6 to 7 cups water + 1 tsp salt.
drain the potatoes from the bowl and add them to the boiling water.
blanch the potatoes for 3 to 4 minutes on the full flame.
then switch off the flame, cover the pot and allow the potatoes to be immersed in water for 3 to 4 minutes.
the potatoes should look translucent.
preparing potato chips slices
drain the potatoes well in a colander or strainer.
then add all the slices in a bowl.
add 1 tbsp oil and 1/2 tsp salt or add as required. gently mix very well so that the oil coats the potato slices evenly. you can also add 2 tbsp oil.

baking potato chips
bake potato chips in a preheated oven at 250 degrees celsius for 10 to 15 minutes.
do keep a check as oven temperatures vary. i baked potato chips in batches since i have small oven.
once they look crisp and are light golden to golden, then remove from the oven.
as soon as they are cooled, store potato chips in an air-tigh jar or box. they get cooled within a minute.
serve potato chips when required.
- instead of baking you can also fry the potato chips.
