Masala Kale Chips

I am obsessed with potato chips and eat them all the time.  My favorite are Masala Chips from India and luckily for me (unlucky for my thighs) I can get them from my Indian Grocery Store.  So, I tried to use the same flavor of ingredients as in my Kale Chips.  The end result was delicious.  If you like a salty chip you may have to add more salt at the end of baking, I sure did!  If you think your child will not even look at Kale Chips…You will be surprised……My son couldn’t & wouldn’t wait until I took picture for this blog entry.    Encourage your child to try different veggie chips, they may like them.     🙂
