Three popular jar snacks using raw bananas

Raw bananas can be used to make extremely tasty and crispy chips, with a texture and taste that is thicker and more rustic than potato wafers. This makes it very popular with Indians.

Banana chips can be made with normal raw bananas as well as with surti raw bananas, a special variety of Kerala bananas that are slightly yellowish in colour and have a distinctive flavour.

Handling Raw Bananas

Unless your recipe specifically calls for mildly-sweet or slightly-ripe raw bananas, you have to use fresh, green and firm raw bananas.

Normally, the raw bananas will start ripening in a day or two and the flavour will change after that. It might take longer in winter to ripen.

Nevertheless, it is better to buy the raw bananas on the day of cooking or a day before. It is preferable to store them at room temperature, but if the weather is too hot, you can store the raw banana in your refrigerator’s vegetable tray in a paper or cloth bag, for a day or two.
