Oman Chilli Flavour Potato Chips. If you’ve been living in the UAE — or the Middle East — long enough, this description will definitely ring a bell. If it doesn’t, you’ve probably been living under a rock. If there’s one snack the UAE kids grew up on, it’s these chilli-coated, golden-yellow crisps, famously known as Oman Chips.

Turning into somewhat of a national delicacy, these famous munchies have been famously adapted into as many cuisines and dishes as one can fathom. Be it in a Japanese avatar of a sushi, or a South Indian dosa, from English sandwiches to Emirati regag — there isn’t a single Oman Chips rendition you’d want to miss out on...
