Tortilla Chips with Tomato Salsa/ Corn Chips








Today I post “Tortillas Chips” under Chips Theme for Blogging Marathon #13 conducted by Srivalli. Tortillas are the bread of Mexico. Crispy tortilla chips can be used to quickly assemble delicious Mexican snacks. Deep fry a large batch of these chips and store them in an air-tight container. They keep well for several days.
Here tortilla chips prepared with mixture of cornmeal and plain flour then make simple dough with hot water. We cook just like simple chapatti and cut into triangle shape and fry in oil and serve with salsa or dip whatever you like. You can call corn chips also.
From the nutrition value point of view, in cornmeal contain lots of carbohydrates and iron.



For tortilla chips
Ingredients
1 ¼ cup corn meal
¾ cup plain flour
½ tsp. salt
½ tsp. carom seeds
2 tsp. vegetable oil
Warm water for dough
Oil for deep frying

Method
For dough
Add cornmeal, flour, salt, carom seeds and oil in bowl.  Mix this flour with figure tips. Add enough hot water in flour for dough and knead well.
Divide the dough in to small portions. Roll out the each portion very thin like chapatti, prick all over with a fork and cook lightly on tawa. Repeat same with the rest of the dough.
For frying
Cut into small triangles and deep fry in oil until crisp. Remove from the flame on kitchen towel.
Serve with salsa or dip. You can store these chips in airtight container.


For tomato salsa
Ingredients
3 tomatoes
1 green capsicum
1 chopped onion
1 green chilli chopped
2 tsp. lemon juice
1 tsp. red chillies powder
Salt to taste
½ tsp. sugar
1 tbsp. olive oil

Method
Boil tomatoes in water for 10-15 minutes.  Remove the skin and chop.
Roast the capsicum on medium flame.  Remove the burn skin and chop.
Heat the olive oil in the pan.  Add onion and green chilli, sauté for 2 min.
Now add capsicum and tomatoes, add vinegar, spices and sugar. Mix well or sauté for 2 minutes.
Serve this salsa with chips.
