  • 2 lbs raw bananas peeled (plantains are recommended)
  • 3 to 4 cups cooking oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon turmeric powder Optional
  • 2 tablespoons water Optional
  • 1 teaspoon salt Optional

Simple Syrup

  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/2 cup white sugar
  • Cooking Procedure


  • In a bowl, combine 2 tablespoons of water, turmeric powder, and salt. Mix well and set aside.
  • Pour cooking oil in a wide pot and heat.
  • When the oil is hot, slice the bananas using a mandolin slicer and place a batch of sliced bananas in the hot oil.
  • Deep fry the banana until almost crisp. When the bananas are almost done, scoop a teaspoon of the turmeric mixture and gently add to the oil. Note: Be very careful. This is an optional step. Doing this can add a yellowish color to the banana slices and make it more crisp.
  • Once the oil stops bubbling, remove the bananas and drain excess oil. Set aside.
  • Meanwhile, lets make the simple syrup. Heat a saucepan and pour in 1/2 cup of water and 1/2 cup sugar.Let boil.
  • Gently stir the mixture and turn off the heat. Let cool.
  • Quickly dip the banana chips in the simple syrup. Drain the excess liquid after dipping.
  • Once the liquid dries-up, place the banana chips in a container, or serve right away.
  • Share and enjoy!
