When I visited Syria, I encountered an unusual food item in all of the markets. They are discs that look like pasta, but I think they are actually potato (communication between me and the shop owners was rather limited!) In fact, they come in both plain and rippled, just like potato chips. Does anyone know what these things are? I tried boiling them in water, but they pretty much disintegrated. I don't do much deep-frying, but that's my next plan. Has anyone had any experience with these things before?
Thanks for your help!
