Baked Roti Nachos and Fusion Food!

Nachos –  that dish which instantly reminds us of Mexican food, and in particular Cinema Halls. Gone are the days when Popcorn , Samosas and Cotton Candy used to be favourite eats at an occasional movie outing with friends / family. Fusion food or rather Quick food (never mind the nutrtition) is here to stay and please most tastebuds. 

Fusion food is here to stay for sure. Be it Pav Bhaji Dosa or Tandoori Tofu Salad, Oats Chaat , Idli Chilly, Pasta Pakora, Idli Manchurian. I personally loved the Aloo Channa Paneer Pie from Radha’s space – something I would make for my kids soon! Something else I loved in her blog are these a-z Noodles from around the world 

Most of the times, we have left over chapatis / Rotis at home. While I usually make Baked chips with them, this time the kids asked for something chatpata as well as quick. So this Leftover Roti Nachos came about.

Tips to make the best Roti Nachos

  1. Can fresh rotis be used ? Yes, but prefer rotis that are a few hours old (and not stale obviously) coz they are dried out a bit and make a fantastic nachos
  2. Can I deep fry the roti to make nachos ? By all means, one can deep fry. Baking or air frying is preferred at home so I have air fried these
  3. I dont have an air fryer / Oven. Can I still make it ?  Yes, you can gently press the rotis one by one on a hot tava / skillet with a soft clean cloth all around the roti until they dry out completely and proceed with the rest of the dish. Of course, this is time consuming compared to deep fry / air fryer / baking methods
  4. I want to make it vegan. Can I skip the cheese? Yes , you can skip the cheese and serve this with salsa or use a vegan cheese (pref a variety that melts like mozzarella)
  5. Can I make this with Jowar Rotis / Millet Rotis instead of whole wheat chapatis ? Yes, I am sure you can. But I haven’t tried. Alternately, you can use Corn Tortillas too
  6. What can I serve this with ? As our roti nachos was spicy and tangy by itself (see recipe below), we had it as is. However a salsa / Sour cream / guacamole would make it more filling

    What a delightful and delicious makeover from leftover rotis. Lovely recipe. And please don’t even talk to me about cinema and nachos. Brings back memories when once we bought nachos to enjoy while watching a movie.. didn’t watch the movie as a hand flick and the whole content was on my dress!
