S.N.R chips made the otherwise ordinary town alongside the Thrissure- Palakad highway, Alathoor, make its mark on the food map of Kerala. The way they sustain quality, as they started decades back in 1947, is one of the main reason for their popularity. S.N.R chips is at Main Road Alathur, opposite Canara bank and will be open on all days of the week from 9 am to 9 pm, except for Sundays when they close down by 1 pm.
‘King of Banana chips’ is the name anointed to S.N.R chips by its regular customers. This small single branch bakery, which became a legend in the business, was started back in 1947, in Alathoor, some 30 kilometers away from Palakad town.
While traveling from Palakad town area, you have to turn towards Alathoor at Swathi junction and S.N.R chips is directly opposite Canara bank, on Main road, Alathoor. Parking space is not available anywhere near the shop, so its better to park your vehicles on the roadside near the Government Girls High School, a few yards away from the shop.
The banana chips from this place are special in so many ways. They are prepared from a special variety of banana grown at some parts of thrissure, they are sliced into a particular size, they are rinsed in water loaded with special spices and last but not the least fried in special coconut oil, which makes the chips almost oil free after it is fished out from oil.
This bakery was founded by Shahul Hameed and is presently ran by four brothers, who are the fourth generation of the family. Chips from this place are hand made by one of the brothers most of the time and they haven’t gone for any mass production methods even after the wide demand for their chips.
They prepare fresh chips around the clock and lots of people travel long distances just to buy this item. You can also order before hand, if you want a large quantity, like many who works abroad who buys and takes it to their places of work. Their chips are said to maintain its crispy and fresh nature upto one month after preparation, courtesy of the pure coconut oil they use in preparation.
This place enthralls you not just with their tasty chips but also with the behavior of its owners. The hospitality they show towards their customers. They treat their customers in a very friendly and respectable manner, which gains them a lot of repeated customers.
