|Abstract||Investigation were carried out to produce flakes and flour from potatoes. Two popular variety of potatoes in the state of Punjab namely Kufri Pukhraj and Kufri Jyoti were selected for this purpose. The raw potatoes procured from the local vegetable market were peeled, boiled in a microwave. A mash was produced by crushing boiled potatoes followed by dipping in 0.2%KMS solution for 1 hour to remove the sugars. The drained mashed potatoes were dried at 50Â°C, 60Â°C & 70Â°C in the layers of 5, 6 & 7 mm. The prepared mash was also dried in a solar dryer. It consumed about 900-1290 min to dry at 50Â°C & 70Â°C. Effective moisture diffusivity varied between 1.43x10-10 & 3.98 x 10-10 m2/sec for tray dried sample in comparison to 2.79 x 10-10 to 4.39x10-10 m2/s for solar dried. The prepared flakes were grounded to produce the flour that was stored in HDPE and LDPE pouches, Al laminate & glass bottles and kept at room temperature. The parameters like moisture content, colour, NEB, flavor etc. were estimated at regular interval of 15 days. The process parameters, temperature & thickness were optimized by RSM technique for the responses, namely rehydration ratio (RR), shrinkage ratio (SR), reducing sugar, swelling index (SI), starch content, colour (L value) and overall acceptability (OA). The vital values of these parameters were 1.83-2.8 (RR), 0.76-1.2 (SR), 0.012-0.189 (reducing sugar), 1.52-2.14 (SI), 5.82-6.45 (starch content), 47.4-53.12 (L value) and 7.06-7.52 (OA) respectively. The optimized values of temperature & thickness lie in the range of 61.27-58.44Â°C & 6.56-5.86 mm respectively for tray & solar dried, Kufri pukhraj & jyoti potato. From the study, it was concluded that the log model showed high adequacy of fit & best result was obtained for laminate packed potato flour.|

National Digital Library of India (NDLI) is a virtual repository of learning resources which is not just a repository with search/browse facilities but provides a host of services for the learner community. It is sponsored and mentored by Ministry of Education, Government of India, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT). Filtered and federated searching is employed to facilitate focused searching so that learners can find the right resource with least effort and in minimum time. NDLI provides user group-specific services such as Examination Preparatory for School and College students and job aspirants. Services for Researchers and general learners are also provided. NDLI is designed to hold content of any language and provides interface support for 10 most widely used Indian languages. It is built to provide support for all academic levels including researchers and life-long learners, all disciplines, all popular forms of access devices and differently-abled learners. It is designed to enable people to learn and prepare from best practices from all over the world and to facilitate researchers to perform inter-linked exploration from multiple sources. It is developed, operated and maintained from Indian Institute of Technology Kharagpur.
NDLI is a conglomeration of freely available or institutionally contributed or donated or publisher managed contents. Almost all these contents are hosted and accessed from respective sources. The responsibility for authenticity, relevance, completeness, accuracy, reliability and suitability of these contents rests with the respective organization and NDLI has no responsibility or liability for these. Every effort is made to keep the NDLI portal up and running smoothly unless there are some unavoidable technical issues.
Ministry of Education, through its National Mission on Education through Information and Communication Technology (NMEICT), has sponsored and funded the National Digital Library of India (NDLI) project.
