Pumpkin Chips with Seasoned Egg Yolk Batter

Pumpkin Chips with Seasoned Egg Yolk BatterYes, pumpkin chips do exist on this planet! Though they are not as crispy as compared to their distant cousins made from potatoes, taste is absolutely yummy. I've used a generous amount of egg yolk in the batter which can be omitted to make a vegan version of these chips. I've made finger-shaped pumpkin chips but you can cut them into your desired shape. Make sure you do not cut very thin slices else they may break during deep frying. Use a hard and raw pumpkin instead of taking a ripe fruit. This will help in getting a crisper result. Do not forget to serve it with a tangy tamarind sauce. You can mix some sliced zucchini along with pumpkin fingers. Let's make this yummy snack right now.
