Nachos… the Word itself tingles the Tastebuds !!
Originally from Mexico but its famous in almost every corner of the World, a Favourite with all especially kids.
Usually, the Nacho Chips that we have outside are made with Maida/ All Purpose Flour but I am giving a HEALTHY Recipe without the Maida so that it can be made to give it as a Snack to the kids instead of the ready-packaged food that they gorge on, these are equally delicious!!
Ingredients for Nacho Strips
- 2 cups Maize flour( makai ka Atta)
- 2 cups Whole Wheat flour
- 1 cup Cornflour
- 1 to 2 cups water( approximately)
- Salt to taste
- 4 tsp oil
- Oil for frying
If you are using small cups for measuring the flours, then use small spoons also, the best would be to use measuring cups & spoons.
Ingredients for Masala
- 1 tbsp red chilli powder
- 1 tbsp cumin powder
- Salt as per taste
- 1 tsp Dry oregano
- 1 tsp garlic powder ( optional)
For the Masala
Mix the chilli, cumin powder, oregano, salt & keep aside
For the Nacho Strips
Take all the flours, mix well, add salt & oil, make into a dough, not very soft with the water.
Immediately start making medium sized balls of the dough, roll into a circle ( should be like a thick roti/ flatbread), poke the rolled dough with a fork & cut into strips.
Now Heat Oil in a Large Pan/ kadai, once it’s heated properly add the strips & fry till golden brown, Remove on a tissue or parchment paper.
Now add the premixed Masala as soon as the Nacho Strips are removed from the oil, mix the Masala well till the strips are coated well with it.
Your Chatpata Nacho Strips are Ready to be Gorged on!!
