A shout-out to our lovely Peruvian friends Ana and Rale, who, among many other valuable pieces of information, told us that we could find salty banana chips in Indian grocery stores. In Perú, banana/plantain chips (called chifles) are always salty. You can imagine how disappointed we were when we moved here and tried our first and only bag of sweet banana chips.
The chips I bought at our nearest Indian shop have turmeric but that doesn’t make much of a taste difference, in my opinion. You should have seen Alvaro’s face when he took the first bite. He almost cried, which is totally understandable since he hasn’t been back home for 4 years.
The ingredients aren’t perfect but they don’t look as bad as some commercial chips. We do know that junk is junk and that chips are a once-in-a-while thing.
We polished the whole bag while watching Metal Evolution and drinking cider. Good times.
