Hello hungry people!
Today (on this late day 4) we bring you desi-fied Nachos! When I saw the recipe on MadeEasy I thought it looked a little complicated but with a few short cuts (read: Mom’s ready-made mince) we were able to put it together super fast.
I decided to switch the naan for pita bread but I think I will definitely do chappati next time as the bread soaked up too much oil. Couple other tweaks I made were add an easy salsa and sour cream and top with cheese and olives. As the National Made Easy event was all about fusion cooking I don’t think it gets any better than this.
You will need:
3 pita bread, sliced into triangles
Oil for deep frying
1 cup minced mutton made the National Made Easy way
1 green chili
1 lemon, halved
2 tablespoons coriander
½ cup sour cream
½ cup shredded cheese
5 olives, sliced
Slicing up the pita bread like a boss. Deep fry them in hot oil till golden and crispy.
Ingredients all set up for nacho-assembly
Layer the pita chips, mince, mint chutney, salsa in two layers. Top with cheese and olives.
I made the salsa by dicing up two tomatoes, and mixing it with one chili, thinly sliced, a squeeze of half a lemon and 2 tablespoons chopped corainder. Stir and ta da! An easy salsa. Sour cream is you basic cream mixed with a squirt of half a lemon and stirred till it thickens.
Made Easy Rating:
Overall, this recipe is a crowd pleaser if you want to serve your fam something filling for iftar and it is a very different take on traditional nachos. I love how customizable the recipe is because you can add or subtract what you don’t like.
We hope you are enjoying our series. Stay tuned for Day 5 tomorrow!
