The potatoes selected for wafers should be large oval shape free from disease and fully grown. Potatoes should have the minimum numbers of eyes to cut down the losses by trimming. Potatoes are before peeling them with the help of a peeler. (For more details of potato peeler click here) then these potatoes are trimmed and put in brine water for 30-35 minutes to prevent browning. Potatoes are sliced as per required thickness in a slicing machine. The slices are again placed in cold water whenever there is considerable delay you can subsequent operation of blanching. Then slice are kept in water containing 0.05% potassium metabolism (the chemical processes that occur within a living organism to maintain life) to avid oxidation. The slice are blanched for 3 to 5 minutes in boiling water and spread on trays at the rate of 4.88 kg to 7.30 kg per square meter tray surface, the blanched chips are then subject to hydro extracting machine (centrifugal) to remove excess of water and fried in edible oil at 140-240° c, for 3-4 minutes. This wafer and other ingredients like salts; spicy mixture is sprayed as per required taste. Now this potato wafers are then packed in the bags and sealed.
