I did a Sunita and I dont think she would really mind if I claim that I did a better job than her ;-). What happens when your eyes looks at a PHP Book while your ear eavesdrops to the news on the TV, your mind travelling at the speed of sound to the reasons and causes your code has bugs, your feet tapping and doing a merry dance on its own at some music blaring at the neighbor's place, and your fingers slicing sweet potatoes in a Mandolin with your bare hands????? (Oh ya..I juggle my work this way! Sounds unorganised! I know!)
The result is a 'bloody' finger!!!!!!! I really wanted to take a photo, to gather some people to 'tch','tch' for me so that I can wallow in self-pity but then later looked little silly when I really thought of doing it ;-). So my finger looking like a present day Kashmir with half a head cut off..Yes I sliced a top part of my finger...Net connection outage for 9 straight hrs....I have to excuse for my falling behind the Marathon running course!!! ( Phew! Thats some massive excuse! is it not ;-) I should have been a politician!)
Lets come to the famous Chips which caused a Chip in my finger and which caused me a chip on my shoulder!! There must be so many times when you see your 'Oh-My-God! Is it you...Its been Ages!' friends or aquaintance on the road or somewhere nearby and you feel that you should invite them to your place. And then bang comes the realisation that you barely have anything in your pantry or fridge ( except for some dish which U dint know was which day's left over!) or any snacks ( thanks to that ever lasting diet programme!) and giving some lame tea/juice is just not it!
Hence some quick fixes help a great deal something which does not take immesurable length of time to make, something which you can make along side with your guest talking over your shoulder ( I know some ppl hate it! I know I do!!!) and its over in matter of minutes and is delicious to boot too...! I am talking about chips. What can be more easier than that! I made some vegetable chips y'day and which I half fried ( one batch) and half baked ( Since I couldnt fry with Red Ganga flowing off my finger tips for one hour straight!) and both tasted as delicious and as tasty as each other!
Peel and slice the plantain in thin slices.
Peel and slice the beetroot the same way. You can just cut thin slices with a peeler/knife. I peeled the Sweet potatoes and created ribbons with a peeler.
Or you can use the Mandolin to slice all the veggies into thin slices.
Fry them in batches, seperately in a oil - med-high.
Drain them in paper towels. You can bake them too at 450F for 10-20min depending on your oven. Season them as soon they come out hot.
