Chapathi chips ... fun evening snack

Leftover chapathis ??? Try this delicious snack for a cozy evening time. It is a perfect snack for kids and adults too. You might want to munch on these healthy whole wheat chips for your chai time. We make this sometimes when there are leftover chapathis or sometimes I make a few extra chapathis purposefully to make these in the evening. First I used to make tortilla chips with leftover tortillas that we used to buy. Now back in India I use the same idea but make it with leftover rotis

Sweat out time is minimal here so no standing in the kitchen and stirring or mumbling for an evening snack. Just put everything together, then line up on a baking tray and bake till done. Isnt that simple and super quick? Try it and you will love it for sure

Make salsa for the side dip and you will crave for more. Kids love hung curd dip and that combi turns out be their favorite. So we make both dippings always

Serves... 3 ppl
Serve option... Room temperature with Homemade Salsa

This is what u'll need....

Leftover chapathis - 2 nos
Red chilli powder - 1/4 tspn
Chaat masala - a sprinkle
Garam masala - 1/4 tspn (Optional)
Oil - 1 tspn
Salt to taste

Here is the stir....
  • Preheat oven at 200 degrees
  • Take 2 chapathis. I prefer using a day old chapathis or chapathis made in the morning. The dryness in it helps making crispier chips
  • Pick chapathi and cut it into small pieces. Mine mostly comes into triangles and rectangles. Use kitchen scissors to make your task simple
  • Transfer the pieces to a working bowl. Sprinkle all the dry spices in - red chilli powder, chaat masala, garam masala and salt. Omit the garam masala if you are not a big fan of it. Try cumin powder if you like
  • Drizzle a teaspoon of oil. Cover the bowl with a plate and give it all a good shake. This will help the spice and oil spread evenly on all the pieces
  • Line up the pieces in a single layer on a baking tray. Bake it in the oven till it turns slightly borwn and crispy. You might have to flip the pieces once in between
  • Once the chips are done remove tray from the oven and leave it out to bring it to room temperature

  • Arrange them in a serving bowl/plate with freshly made salsa. Enjoy your enack

  • Dont over-bake the chapathis else they will turn bitter
  • Adjust spices to your taste
  • Garam masala is optional. Omit if you dont like
