I had made baked samosa. For the samosa pastry, I had made chapati/tortilla from wholewheat flour. It was then filled with the stuffing made from potato, peas, and spices by making a cone from the chapati and then sealed.
I was left with extra chapati and so thought of baking it to make crispy chips. I had khakra masala or mix masala which is made from black pepper, rock salt, coriander-cumin powder, salt, mango powder. I thought of using it as the seasoning on the chapati.
I took chapati, brushed it with oil, sprinkled a generous amount of mix spices over it, cut it into triangular wedges like cutting a pizza and kept it for baking. The baked chips came out so crisp and the masala enhanced its flavor.
My son and even we enjoyed it a lot and he asked me to make it again.
The seasoning over the chips can be experimented as per your taste such as:
Italian flavor – Mixed herbs, chili flakes and salt
Mexican flavor- oregano, paprika, cumin powder, onion powder, garlic powder
or by using tomato powder, onion powder, garlic powder, cheese powder.
This wholewheat chips are so easy to make, healthy and enjoyed by all. They can be enjoyed with a cup of tea or coffee or with some dips. They can be also baked with some veggies, beans, and cheese and can be served as a starter for a party.
