A lovely chip made from taro root.
- 1 lb. taro root peeled
- 1/2 cup oil for frying
- 1 clove garlic minced
- salt and pepper to taste
Peel the taro root and place in salted boiling water until just tender (take care not to overcook or it will become mushy and fall apart.)
When cool, cut into slices
heat cooking oil over medium high heat, add taro root to oil and cook until golden brown, flip over and brown other side.
Remove and sprinkle with salt, pepper and minced garlic clove.
