Shelf life

Masala nachos as they are fried item and prepared with wheat flour you can store them up to 10-15 days into an airtight container.

Preparations

Masala nachos are quick recipe can be prepare under 20 minutes. Main ingredient used in making of masala nachos are wheat flour, coriander powder, red chilli powder, chaat masala and salt.

For making masala nachos first step is to knead a perfect dough to get crispy and delicious nachos. we are looking soft dough for making them crispy. In a mixing bowl add wheat flour and spices. I am also adding little bit oil, it will give perfect texture to nachos. Add water and knead a soft dough. Cover the dough and let it sit for 10 minutes.

When dough turn soft, take small portion and roll it thin. If it is difficult to roll apply some oil on the rolling pin. When you have thin circle start cutting it, into 8 pieces ( move pizza cutter vertical then horizontal later diagonally). Prick it all over by using fork it prevent forming any bubble in nacho while frying.

Another important step fry them into the right temperature. Oil should be moderately hot. To check the temperature drop small piece of dough into the oil, if it slowly come on the surface means oil is good for frying. Fry nachos on low-medium heat until turn golden brown.

Take them out on paper towel to soak any excess oil, serve nachos with ketchup or any dip. You can store them in air tight container.

Important Point

  1. Dough should be soft. If it is difficult to roll use oil instead of flour.
  2. Fry nachos on low-medium heat, as they are very thin and high heat can burn them easily.
  3. You can topped them with veggie like onion, tomato or with sauce.
  4. For more healthier version you can bake nachos at 200 degree celsius for 15 minutes.
