Nachos with Cheesy Dip

Nachos is a Mexican dish or we can say snack which is comprised of tortilla chips and served with cheese sauce and tomato salsa. They can be made at home either by deep frying or baking in microwave. Taste wise fried version is better and health wise baked.

Ingredients for Tortilla chips/ Nachos  :

1 cup Makki ka atta
3/4 cup All purpose flour/Maida
1 tbsp Salt
1/2 tbsp Oregano flakes
1/2 tbsp Chilli flakes
Water as required for kneading dough
Oil for deep frying

Ingredients for Cheesy Dip :

1 cup Milk (200 ml)
Amul Cheese slices 3
1 tsp Maida
1 tbsp Butter
A pinch of Salt
1 tsp Oregano flakes
1 tsp Chilli flakes

Method for Nachos : Knead soft dough with water by mixing all the above mentioned ingredients and let it rest for 10 mins by covering from kitchen towel. After 10 mins take one big size ball from it and roll it like chapati by applying little maida flour. Thickness of rolled sheet should be slightly less than normal chapati. Now prick it with fork so that it won't puff up during deep frying. Cut it into triangular shapes or any desired shape. Heat oil in deep wok at medium flame and fry 6-7 pieces of chips at a time on medium low flame and turn them once they r light golden brown in color from one side. Take them out once done and keep on tissue paper to remove extra oil. Always fry them on low to medium flame to attain crispiness in chips. Follow same procedure for all the chips. Cool them and keep them in air tight container for later use.

Method for Cheesy Dip : Take a pan and melt butter in it , add maida and saute it for 1-2 mins. Add milk slowly and boil on medium flame once it start boiling add cheese slices i used Amul by cutting into small pieces. Mix it with whisker to avoid lump formation. Boil for 3-4 mins on medium flame till sauce/ dip thickens. Switch off flame, add salt, oregano and chilli flakes and mix well.

Crispy nachos chips are ready to serve with cheesy sauce.
