In this blog, we will be exploring the home made style nachos chips that’s quiet easy, tasty and kind of addictive. Let’s jump in

Vegetarian
Preparation Time: 
30 minutes

Ingredients required to make Nachos chips:

  • Maize Flour: 1 cup
  • All purpose flour: 3 table spoon
  • Baking soda: A pinch
  • Onion powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Garlic powder: 1 teaspoon
  • Paprika powder: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Sugar: 1/2 teaspoon
  • Oregano: 1 teaspoon
  • Chilli Flakes: 1 teaspoon
  • Salt: To taste
  • Warm water: 1/2 cup (enough to make a dough)
  • Oil: To fry as well as add in the dough

Method to make Nachos chips:

  • Sieve the maze flour and all purpose flour in to a bowl. Remove/crush any lumps in the sieve
  • Add the onion powder, garlic powder and paprika and mix well
  • Now, add in the baking soda. Make sure to mix it well in order to avoid any health issues caused due to consumption of unmixed soda
  • Add the salt and sugar now
  • Heat 2 tablespoon of any oil that has no odour to it. I used rice bran oil here. Make sure its warm and not hot. Add this warm oil to the dry mix
  • Add in chilli flakes and oregano
  • Now, add the warm water in batches and mix to get a soft dough. Add the water only in batches as excess water will lead to a sticky dough which would retain oil when fried.
  • Once you get a soft dough, cover it with a moist cloth and let it rest for 10 minutes
  • As the dough rests, heat the required amount of oil into a pan. The oil here can vary but what we are looking for is enough oil to deep fry the nachos
  • Now, take a small portion of the dough, roll it into a circular disk. Make horizontal and vertical cuts using a pizza cutter to get triangle shaped dough
  • Once the oil is heated up, add the nacho chips dough into it and deep fry until they are golden brown.
  • Once golden brown, strain them on a tissue paper to remove any excess oil
  • Garnish with a mix of garlic powder and paprika. You can also garnish using parmesan cheese for an extra kick

Tips:

  • You can make a peri-peri seasoning to garnish the nachos. For peri-peri mix, mix together half tea-spoon of paprika powder, onion powder, garlic powder, coriander powder, cumin powder, sugar and a pinch of salt
  • Use warm water only as maize flour dough needs it
  • You can use vegetable/sunflower oil instead of rice bran oil
