What's better than having South Indian tea-time snacks that hit the right spots on your taste buds?

Here are some South Indian snacks to relish with your cup of tea-

Banana Chips

Banana chips, also known as Upperi, are a famous South Indian snack prepared by deep-frying unripe banana slices in coconut oil. While cooking in the oil, the chips gain their flavour from the salted water. It is a Kerala speciality dish that is readily available during the Onam holiday. Upperi takes centre stage in the festival's sadya, which is usually a vegetarian buffet. They're usually made with firmer, starchier banana species like Saba and Nendran. They can be sweet or savoury and a variety of flavours can be used to coat them like sugar, honey or salt.
