I remember the first time I tasted beetroot chips. It was in the US. Being my first time in the US, I was totally flabbergasted as to how a store can have an entire aisle dedicated to chips. Ah well, innocent times! The husband had this habit (those days) of lingering around in the chips aisle for more time than necessary. He once picked up a few packs of gourmet chips (Terra, I think), which had all mixed root veggies like carrots, beets, sweet potatoes, yam etc. I managed to go through a whole bag in one sitting. How could I not! It would transport me to chip-heaven. Soon, I realised that this was a dangerous thing to be addicted to and promptly banned him from getting them home.
Quite a few Hot-Chips stores in Chennai also stock up some mind boggling variety of chips. The senai (elephant foot yam) chips are particularly crunchy and addictive.
When I got the airfryer a couple of years ago, I wanted to try out these root veggie chips, because there was no way I would have tried deep frying them. If the airfryer could handle potato so well, then why not other root veg, right? All kinds of chip experiments were fairly successful.
Even if you dislike beets, I promise, you will love these chips. I’ve used only salt, but you can add any other seasonings of choice such as pepper or dried herbs. Since these are made in the airfryer, you can relish them without a trace of guilt. In fact, you can be happy about having consumed a fair share of a healthy veggie like beetroot!
