Are chips bad for health?
Let’s be very straightforward here: everything is bad for health if you consume too much of them and keep no balance in your daily life such as diet, exercise, and other routines. When you eat a chip, it can’t possibly harm you, as potato is initially a healthy carbs bulb.
– Rich in antioxidants, which are very essentials in reducing the risk of heart disease and diabetes.
– Able to control blood sugar. The starch in potatoes belongs to the resistant category. This special starch feeds the beneficial bacteria in your guts instead of your body, limits insulin resistance, and, as a result, improves blood sugar control.
– Fulfilling but healthy for digestion. You won’t feel hungry quickly if your meal has some potato even though it is digested well. These benefits also make potato great food for dieters.
Although they aren’t adequate as vegetables, a bag of chips – about 100g – contains 1196mg of potassium. A healthy diet requires 3500mg of potassium, and a banana equal in size only provides an approximate amount.
Moreover, we will use vegetable oil in our fried courses. Vegetable oils don’t have the inflammatory fats that give your heart issues. (1)
How to make Potato Chips?Print
Potato Chips | Crispy Homemade Snack Recipe
- Prep Time: 20 mins
- Cook Time: 10 mins
- Total Time: 30 mins
- Category: How to cook, Snack
- Method: Frying
- 2 potatoes
- 3 tablespoons of cornstarch
- 1/3 cup of breadcrumb (about 50g)
Step 1: Preparation
First of all, let’s handle the main ingredients nicely.
- We will remove the skin and possibly wash them with clean water before cutting them into smaller cubes. The size doesn’t matter since we will be grinding them, but large pieces might be more difficult when you try to mash the potatoes.
- Pour a cup of water into a pot and boil the potatoes for 10 minutes.
- Apply pressure on the boiled pieces and grind them into a smooth paste.
- Add the salt, the cornstarch, and the breadcrumb respectively, stirring the mixture well with each new addition.
Step 2: Shaping and frying
- Pinch a bit of the potato mass and flatten it on a clear surface.
- Shape the potato chips to whatever you like by using the right tools. In my video, I will form different emoticons with the rim of a round cup. The spare potato edge can return to the mass for later use.
- You can use the end of a chopstick and a spoon to make the eyes and the mouth on each chip. Be creative with the expressions, and your children will love it!
- Pour enough cooking oil to deep-fry the chips in your pan and the remaining task is too easy for you.
For ingredients and tools:
- We recommend a nonstick pan to prevent the chips from getting stuck and burnt.
- When you pick the raw potatoes, go for the firm and non-sprouted bulbs.
For the final product:
- It’s the most delicious when you see the potato chips turn golden brown and serve them immediately.
- Decorate the dish with some veggies and ketchup to make it more appealing.
- The thinner your potato chips are, the crispier. Nevertheless, a too-thin chip will have little to no flavor. On the other hand, if you make them thick, they will absorb more oil than they should and affect the calories data tremendously.
- After frying the chips, you might leave them on paper towels to remove excess oil. It will enhance the crispiness of a lot.
