Nachos with Salsa

Nachos or corn chips are a very quick and easy Mexican starters. It is mainly serve with salsa. Nachos are made from Maize flour and all purpose flour but this time I tried with whole wheat flour. The taste is same. When I read about the combo event by Pari, immediately nachos salsa combination came into my mind:)

Combine all the ingredients and knead a soft dough using water. Keep aside for half an hour. Make smal balls of the dough. Roll out ball like thin roti. Cut each roti in 8 triangular pieces. Prick slightly with the fork. Deep fry on medium flame. After it gets cool store it in a airtight container.
