Abstract

Drying behaviour of potato, cauliflower, brinjal, okra and karela in tray dryer investigated. The drying rates were observed to be at higher magnitude during initial drying period and then slowed down in case of potato and brinjal slices. Cauliflower, okra and karela showed only increasing dryitlg rate till the drying period existed. The approximate drying period at 78±2°C temperature, drying air was estimated till the product contains about 10% moisture level.
