kand wafers is an upvas dry snack recipe relished by most of us. Learn how to make kand chips.

To make kand wafers, heat the oil in a deep non-stick pan, deep-fry a few slices on a medium flame till they turn golden brown in colour from all the sides. Drain on an absorbent paper. Sprinkle the rock salt and pepper powder and toss well. Cool completely and store in an air-tight container.

Purple yam has a nice subtle sweet flavour, which makes these kand chips very appealing to the palate. Tossing these wafers with pepper and black salt makes them tastier than regular run-of-the-mill chips, and also makes them suitable to have on fasting days!

You can enjoy these purple yam chips for vrat upvas during Ekadashi, Mahashivratri, Janmashtami and even the festival of colours, Holi. At snack time serve it with Piyush – a rich satiating drink made by combining shrikhand, unsalted buttermilk, sugar, cardamom powder and nutmeg powder.

Cool the salted kand wafer completely and store this crunchy snack in a jar and enjoy it any time you wish, can also be served with other Faaral recipes. You can also try potato wafers for faral as a variation.

Tips for kand wafers. 1. Slice the kand just before frying them as it tends to turn black with time due to exposure to air. 2. Do not make very thick nor very thin slices for this recipe. 3. We have rock salt as it is an upvas recipe, but you can use table salt if you wish to.
