Banana Chips

Banana chips can be baked, dehydrated, or dried for trail-mix consumption. Fried banana chips are said to have originated in Kerala, India, where they are fried in either coconut or palm oil, and flavored with sugar, salt, spices, or jaggery (sugar cane concentrated into a blocklike form). Trader Joe's carries both fried and baked versions, and it's useful to be able to tell the difference between chips plump with saturated fat and dried fruit.
