Ethakka Upperi, Kaya varuthathu or banana chips is an integral part of Kerala special snacks. We use the best handpicked locally grown unripe bananas or plantains for the preparation of this dish. Cleaned banana pieces are finely sliced to circular shaped pieces and it’s then deep fried in pure coconut oil produced from our own mills to form Kaya varuthathu or banana chips. Automated machines are used for cutting and washing of raw bananas. A pinch of turmeric powder imparts a yellow colour and removes the toxic presence. We follow export quality preparation where the products are packed from the factory itself without losing the freshness. We never use the same oil for frying over and over again considering this practice as extremely unsafe and leading to serious health problems.
