Baked chapati chip | Baked wholewheat nachos

Chips are irresistible, and of those, I love Nachos. Loaded with beans and cheese or with simple guacamole, they are simply my favorite kind of chips. I made these cause I really wanted to eat nachos. I searched far and wide for masa harina, the flour from which tortillas are made in Mexico. But nobody carries it here. In fact, I cannot even find makki ka atta in Bangalore to make makki roti :( So I stuck to what I had. I always have chapatti atta at home. Chapati is essentially Indian flatbread that resemble tortillas. You can deep fry the chips or bake them. I baked them and they turned out crisp and equally tasty. And incidentally I had a nice ripe butterfruit / avocado in the fridge to make some yummy guacamole. 1 chapati makes around 25-30 chips.

Baked whole wheat nachos
Recipe Type:  Snacks
Cuisine:          Mexican
Prep Time:     30 minutes
Cook time:     30 minutes
Yield:              75-100

Ingredients:

1 cup Whole wheat flour/ atta (This may make 3-4 chapatis)
Whole wheat flour for dusting
1 tsp Olive oil per chapati
A pinch Salt
Water

Method:

  • Take the whole wheat flour in a large bowl. Add water by the tbsp. and start kneading. Knead until you get a soft smooth dough. The dough should not be shaggy and stick to your hands.
  • Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
  • Take a small lemon sized dough ball.
  • Dust the counter surface with whole wheat flour and roll out the chapati as thin as you can. I suggest making a fresh chapati instead of using a leftover one. You can use leftover dough though.
  • Heat a tava/griddle on the gas stove, reduce the flame once the tava is hot. Put the chapati on the tava and cook until small bubbles appear on one side.
  • Flip the chapati and cook on the other side.
  • Remove from heat. Allow it to cool for 5 mins.
  • Cut into triangles.
  • Place on a baking sheet. Do not let them overlap each other. Drizzle olive oil and sprinkle the salt.
  • Bake for 6-8 mins until browned and crisp.
  • Enjoy with guacamole or salsa.

  2. Tried this....and it was perfect! Some pieces which were thicker than the others had to stay in the oven and little longer, but all in all I'm so happy with this recipe! Absolutely love nachos, and so now I get to eat a healthier version of them! Thank you :)
