Wheat chips

Baked wheat chips is one interesting low calorie spicy snack using leftover chapati. Whole wheat chapathi is a staple food in any Indian / Asian household. Sometimes we may wonder what to do with some left over chapatis. Here is my recipe to turn them into a delicious crispy snack.  I made this whole wheat chips by baking the masala coated chapati bits and we enjoyed it as a healthy snack. I am sure, this recipe is a keeper and I am doing it again and again, and feel incredibly happy for finding out a less-oily spicy snacks for those spice lovers like us:) Here is my innovative recipe for you all!

Baked chapati chips, a healthy snack.

Simple recipe.... anyways it will turn successful!

Masala chapati turned into chips.
whole wheat chapati - 4
olive oil / any oil - 1 tbsp
salt - to taste
red chilly powder - 1 tsp
turmeric powder - 1/4 tsp
garam masala powder - 1/8 tsp
a zip lock cover or wide mixing bowl

Stack the chapatis. Cut the chapatis into  8 wedges.
Mix everything other than chapati in a zip lock cover or bowl.
add the chapathi bits and mix well.
Coat a baking sheet slightly with oil.
Arrange the masala chips in single layer.
Bake at 350 deg F for 10 minutes (without getting brown), toss using a spoon (no need for single layer now). Bake again for 5 minutes.
Take out, let cool (now the chips will get more stiff in room temperature).
Store in airtight container.
Wheat chips is ready!

Serving suggestions:
Serve as snack with tomato sauce.
Tastes similar to tortilla chips.

Likewise I prepared chapati using wheat flour +salt+ cilantro + green chilly slices and baked like the above. Tastes good.
These bits can be fried instead of baking too.
