This is one of my childhood favorite snacks that I eat during fasting or vrat. My mom makes it as an evening snack. Using this root vegetable, she also makes suran ki sabji and suran khichdi.

For making suran chips, first suran is peeled and thinly sliced. Then it is cooked for few minutes in the boiling water. After that we will pat dry all the pieces and will deep fry them. As soon as it comes out from the oil, sprinkle salt and pepper and squeeze fresh lemon juice. Eat it and enjoy!!

Addition of lemon juice is must. Suran is the kind of root vegetable that may create an itchy feeling in your throat. But the lemon juice will prevent it. Not only lemon juice, any souring agent e.g. tamarind, yogurt will prevent the itchy feeling. So for the sake of flavor and prevent this itchy feeling, do not skip the lemon juice.

These are slightly crispy and yet soft. If not served hot/warm, it will get more softer and lose its crispness.
