Bhoomi Banana Chips

As a little treat from our friends over at Bhoomi Kitchen, we’ve been given the secret to their delicious Keralan-style banana chips.

A lot of South Indian cuisine is rich in delicious, flavourful plant-based food. And in Kerala, these banana chips, coined as “Upperi”, are commonly served at weddings and festivals – such as Onam.

Not only are they moorish as HECK, these crunchy snacks are a great source of magnesium and vitamin B6. 

Bhoomi Kitchen’s chefs have kindly divulged their recipe for these delicious vegan bites for you to try at home…
