Do these chips even need an intro? They are so delicious and healthy and honestly a favorite in our house.
I used Indian spices but honestly, you can use seasonings as per your tastes from Fajita, curry powder to Chinese 5 spice.. the choices are limitless.
Kale chips are 85% water and the goal is to bake slowly at a low temp so we remove all the water and they can crisp. Store in an airtight container to keep crispy and will last for a week.
I got creative and also made Kale Chaat which is Indian street food. Chaat or chat is a category of Indian street foods that have the perfect combination of spicy, salty, tangy, sweet, crunchy and oh did I mention exotic. There are endless varieties of foods that are labeled as chaat and they all look and taste just a little different.
Kale Chaat: Use kale as the base and add some beaten yogurt( I used unsweetened coconut yogurt), diced boiled potatoes, green coriander chutney, tamarind chutney, sprouted moong, diced onions, and a sprinkle of sev, and a dash of red chili powder, salt, and cumin powder. Dig in fast as it gets soggy real quick.
