Shun your normal potato chips and try this unusual kakrol (Kantola / Teasle Gourd) chips and relish as appetizers with some kasundi (bottled mustard sauce) or green chutney. It is really yummy and something different. They can also be had as a side dish with dal-chawal for a soul satisfying meal.

salt to taste
1/4 tsp. turmeric powder
1/4 tsp. pepper powder
2 tbsp. rice powder
