Pita chips

Pita chips with salsa are always a favorite snack. These are fresh-from-the-oven wedges of seasoned pita bread. They are a little thicker than regular chips but have a crunchy snap to it that gives it an interesting twist. Homemade version is worth the make as you just cant get the same deligh from a store bought version. Its just the time it takes to bake as the prep time is no more than 2-3 mins. Now thats easy... isnt it???

Serves... 2 ppl 
Serve option... Salsa or sour cream dip

This is what u'll need....

Pita bread 1
Olive oil 2 tbspn
Garlic salt 1/2 tspn
Garam masala 1 tspn (store bought) 

Here is the stir....
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees
  • Line a baking sheet with aluminium foil or parchment paper
  • Cut each pita into half and then cut them into small wedge
  • Line the wedges in one layer onto the baking sheet
  • Drizzle olive oil on the chips.  Sprinkle evenly with garlic salt and garam masala. Adjust spice as you may like it
  • Bake in the oven for 8 mins. Take it out and flip the wedges. Bake  for another 7-8 minutes until golden brown and crunchy. Careful as they tend to burn very easily. So keep an eye on them
