The missi roti nachos is actually inspired by childhood memories. My mom used to accumulate leftover rotis through the week and instead of tossing them in the bin, she would fry them crisp. On weekends, these fried, nacho-like roti crisps would be served as an evening snack with some imaginative dip, piquant achaar or a chutney.

  6. Now divide the missi roti dough into 8 parts and roll them like chapatis.
