Chips. The word itself drives our memory to think of the crispy thin layer of potato. Deep-fried or baked, the common side dish/snack/appetizer is around the world. Not only is it popular among kids, but chips are also famous among adults as well. Any party without chips?
Hmmm…possible but rare. But why are the chips very famous? Of course, they are tasty and they are easily available and affordable. The regular potato chips are high in calories. Frito-Lay, Pringles are the most famous among them. So the chips manufacturers are creating alternatives to reduce the calorie and to boost the nutrients.
Some chips or crisps are available from vegetables like plantain, tapioca, yam, and even carrot. Some fruit-based chips are prevalent too. Sweet potato chips are eaten in Korea, New Zealand, and Japan and parsnip, beetroot, and carrot crisps are available in the United Kingdom. India is famous for its chips varieties ranging from potato, plantain, tapioca and yam. Philipines is famous for banana chips. Kenyan cassava chips, rice chips from China, Mexican tortillas and Indonesian and Malaysian prawn crackers are some more examples.
Nacho chips are the party favourite and movie time snack available in theatres. Nowadays I have been using feathery, light, ultra crispy baked wonton chips instead of baked tortilla chips and they are so good. Here, I am making chips using wonton wraps.
Things needed for crispy baked wonton chips
Wonton wrappers are used in Asian cooking to make dishes like crab rangoon, wontons, egg rolls, and many other dishes. I am using the regular wonton wraps available in supermarkets. Wholemeal wontons can be used to make the recipe healthier.
Olive oil is the oil used in this recipe. Any of your favourite oils can be used. Try to avoid strong-smelling oils like sesame oil as they tend to overpower the dish.
The simple salt and pepper, cheese, smoked paprika, Indian masalas will work well in this recipe. Be wild with your seasonings and toppings.
The simple tomato ketchup, hummus, nacho cheese, salsa are best when accompanied by these chips.
