I had to Google the health benefits of kale.
I understood it’s a very low calories vegetable and is packed with loads of health benefits.
Well kale does have omega 3 and that’s good for the health.
It’s now a trend to deep fry or air fry the green leafy vegetables and serve it instead of chips or french fries with something well I’ve seen some photos where posh cafes serve the healthy foos. Am not sure how far you can do it crispy on a oven or air fryer but i am very sure if you deep fry it, the kale gets crispy and crunchy.
I know its not very healthybut trust me i wish i had an airfryer to try it but then am not in a mood to invest on it for a weekly frying session. And yes space is a bit of an issue in my kitchen.
Well i tried the kale chips by just washing them and patting them dry.
You need to dry them out thoroughly or else you better not fry them in oil. Everytime i put my kale in the oil there was splatter and splash of hot oil. i had to run and hide myself to prevent any burns.
Yes please be careful before frying leaves always dry it very well.
After frying i seasoned them with salt.
You can store it in a small box in the fridge and use it up on a salad the next day.
