The man at Patel Bros. grocery in Jackson Heights, Queens told me they didn’t have any green chili powder or lime powder, but they did have this powdered mint chutney mix. The first ingredient was salt, perfect for a batch of potato chips!
I don’t have a mandolin so I used my Kyocera ceramic knife to slice the potatoes as thinly as possible.
I microwaved them for 3 minutes and then checked them to see if any were burning. I think it took about another minute before they were crispy. No oil, just non-ionizing microwave radiation!
They weren’t bad but I had to dump a lot more chutney mix and some raw green chili to make it flavorful enough for my taste. It looks like I might have to go to India after all!
