Nachos Chips / Home-made Nachos Chips / Nacho Chips


Nachos are a snack food from Mexico, and now been popular among all parts of the world. Nachos are served as starter with a layer beans, veggies, non-veg with a variety of dips. Not only its me but my family like nachos to the core, and this was one long wait to try recipe in my list and finally done today.

Nachos was very easy, simple and consumes very little time to prepare with the combination of Maize flour, maida/apf and salt. No one would say no to this Nachos chips, as this goes out well as munch even with plain coffee or tea. Let me share the recipe…

Making of Nachos / Nacho chips –


  • In a wide mouth bowl, take corn meal, maida/all-purpose flour, red chilli powder, carom seeds and salt all together.
  • Mix it well.
  • Pour water little by little and start kneading the flour and roll out to a dough.
  • Take a small portion of the dough, dust the working space, flatten the dough and cut them to the right shape (check out the video).
  • Meanwhile heat the oil in a kadai, gently drop the nacho dough one by one and continue cooking.
  • Cook only in medium flame (otherwise it would turn out to dark brown in color).

Store it an air-tight container once it reaches the room temperature. Stays fresh for a week time.



Fish Fry (Fish and Chips Style)


Already I have shared one fish fry recipe and this one is completely different from that because I have induced Maize flour/Cornmeal as the base of fish fry. As usual collected this from of the cookery shows in Television by Chef. KiranJethwa

Fish fry was crispy, soft and delicious with the flavor of Maize flour. The most important is very easy, simple and little time consumption recipe, even kids can prepare themselves. I have served it with tomato ketchup and Strawberry Kiwi Mojito as of Summer. Let us move on to the recipe…
