  1. Prepare 50% sugar solution. Mix 1 kg sugar in 1 L water until it dissolves. You may heat the solution to ease in dissolving and then cool. Set aside.
  2. Wash and soak bananas in chlorinated water (100 ppm) for 10 minutes.
  3. Peel and slice thinly (0.05 – 1 mm) green, mature bananas. Apply oil to the slicer to ease in slicing.
  4. Wash sliced banana chips to prevent sticking during frying.
  5. Put slices in wire mesh and fry in cooking oil at high temperature (150 – 175°C) until light brown or when bubbling ceases (approximately 3 minutes). Remove from cooking oil (first fried).
  6. Soak in sugar solution for 2-3 minutes and then drain.
  7. Fry again the sweetened slices in cooking oil until golden brown or when bubbling slows.
  8. Drain and cool in trays lined with absorbent paper.
  9. Separate sticked chips.
  10. Pack in large, clean glass bottles, large cans or PE plastic bags.
