Suraj crafted a dish using potato peels and was seen presenting his creation to the judges in a viral video, earning commendation from Chef Vikas Khanna and Chef Ranveer Brar. He revealed that the recipe relies on basic ingredients such as salt and common Indian spices, commonly found in most households. These elements are combined with the potato peels, and the mixture is then microwaved overnight. The outcome is the crunchy, flavourful, and absolutely delightful potato peel chips. The judges praised the dish, calling it a “zero waste milestone” and suggesting that everyone in India should start making these chips instead of throwing away potato peels.
The dish has divided the internet with some emphasising its zero-waste aspect while others express concerns about the electricity consumption during the prolonged microwave heating.
One person commented, “Who will pay the electricity bill if we keep the oven running throughout the night.”
“Zero waste milestone and what about the electric wastage,” another comment read.
Someone else sarcastically added, “This brother has run the oven overnight and has made zero waste by spending one night’s electricity.”
Meanwhile, another person emphasised that the “peel has more nutrient value than the inner part.”
