Today, I’m adding another one to the list of healthy chips. Let’s remember what I’ve published so far.
Adding chickpea chips to this list makes me happy, because it is more satisfying than others. Moreover, it is quite open to changes. For example I wanted to make it cheese flavored but it’s up to you to diversify.
Which Flavors Can Be Added?
Next to the cheese, you can add chopped fresh mint, dill or parsley. You can remove the cheese completely and get more spicy chips with different spices. Spices such as garlic or onion powder, thyme and dried mint will give you a closer taste to the store bought chips, for example. If you don’t like complicated flavors, you can prepare it plain.
Let’s talk about the preparation steps of the recipe … Chips dough has a very firm consistency. So it’s not easy to roll it, it requires strong arms and strength. Of course, this depends entirely on how thin you want the chips. It may not be that hard to make thick chips. But you’ll have to put a lot of effort into make chips thin as store bought ones. For this delicacy, when you come to the cutting step, the dough should be large enough to cover almost whole of the wax paper.
It is essential that you often turn the wax papers upside down during the rolling phase. Because while you are rolling it smoothly from the top, the paper on the bottom wrinkles and gets into the dough. When you turn it over, just separate the wax paper from the dough and then place it again, your dough will be rolled evenly.
It is impossible to guess how long it takes to bake the chips. It will vary greatly depending on the thickness and size of the chips. You can look through the oven glass and observe the color change, and after seeing the color change, you can taste a thick one. If you cannot open the dough evenly, some of the chips will be thick and some will be thin. Thin ones will naturally be baked earlier. You can take them out of the oven earlier so that the thin ones don’t burn while you wait for the thick ones to be baked.
