             One of my friends gave me kale from her home garden and asked me to try kale chips, so I made them, and they came out so great! And we ate them at one sitting, so I bought a bag of kale from Publix. This time instead of sprinkling seasoning after air frying, I tossed them with oil and chaat masala, and air fried them. Voila! We Amazed at how good they came out. It is now one of my favorite snacks to make. It is a very healthy snack. This recipe is versatile and can be modified to include whatever flavors or seasonings you desire. I added a few options below.
