Let us imagine you are at your local grocery store/ supermarket. You are intrigued by the dark green curly leaves sitting on your grocery store shelf. You are thinking ," Hm.. is it spinach, lettuce?" By this time you walk close to the aisle and read the label " Curly Leaf or Dinosur Kale". You think," oh well, whatever! i don't know how to cook it, never tasted it". I am sure DH or my kids won't eat this any way!You just pick up our good old spinach and move on!
I don't know about you, I surely have done this many times! kale is on a abrgain now. So I had the courage to pick up a bunch! Your mood is , Heck, it is only $ 1.99 even if I waste it, i want to try it!
BTW kale has a lot of antioxidants, you know the same good stuff seen in Broccoli, sweet potatoes :))
And that is exactly what I did!
Found everyone raving about Kale chips and I had to make it!
So, Here it goes!
- 1 bunch of Kale
- 1 tablespoon olive oil
- 2 tablespoon dosai milagai podi ( can be replaced with chilli powder, chaat masala etc)
- Kosher salt to taste
- Pre heat oven to 350 F. Line your cookie sheet with foil. helps with cleaning, trust me!
- Wash the bunch of kale and rip the leaves into large bite size pieces. make sure you don't include the thick vein in the middle, as it is hard to chew!
- In a bowl add the oil and milagai podi.
- Add the kale leaves and gently toss them all so the oil and spices are well coated on the leaves.
- Arrange them separately on a baking sheet. Sprinkle some kosher salt on top.
- Bake for 15 mins or till the leaves are crispy.
Let them cool and store them in an air tight box.
Snack on them as much ( not much with 1 bunch though) you want guilt free!
