Nendran chips always reminds of kerala chips where they use coconut oil for making chips. I love its flavour the best.I have not seen many kids who are so specific in snacks too and the lil one is in the list. She is not fond of biscuits, cakes, sweets etc, she asks for cream biscuits licks the cream clean and reserves the biscuits for her mother ;)
Though we dont make savoury snacks often at home, she likes ompodi and nendran chips very much. Whenever we visit perimmas house, she packs us nendrangai and we mostly end up making this chips for her sake.
