Easy corn flour tortilla chips that is gluten free and great snack. I had a recipe long time to try that I saved from a public forum. But it was not a gluten free. Then found this simple recipe. Just yellow corn flour/ makki ki atta (masa harina) and water, salt. Simple and flavorful result. I sent this recipe for my step by step series in Kungumam thozhi magazine. Thought I could use this recipe to schedule when I am in vacation. If you are a fan of tortilla chips, do try this for snack. I tried a cheese dip too, but have only step by step pictures for it. So will share later.

Masa harina/ yellow corn flour/ Makki ki atta - 1 cup

Salt - 1/4 tsp

Hot water - as needed


  1. Mix corn flour, salt and add required hot water to knead to a soft dough. Keep aside for 1 hour.
  2. 1-dough
  3. After an hour, knead again and divide into 4 equal sized balls. Use any fine flour (like rice or white corn starch) to dust and roll into flat discs like we do for roti. I used all purpose flour for dusting. But as I said any gluten free flour should work.
  4. 2-dough
  5. Heat a tawa and toast the rolled tortilla in medium flame without changing its colour.
  6. 3-cook
  7. Cool down and cut into triangles.
  8. 4-cut
  9. Pre heat oven at 190 deg C and bake it at the same temperature for 6 mins first, then flip and bake for another 6 mins or until the tortillas turn crisp.
  10. 5-done


  • This yellow corn flour is sold as masa harina or makki ki atta in the stores. It is slightly corase in structure.
  • The dough should be non sticky yet soft.
  • The rolled tortilla will look with cracked edges, but don't worry about it.
  • You can deep fry the chips instead baking. But make sure to cook slowly to make it crisp.
  • You can reduce the baking temperature by 10 deg C if you find the colour too dark.

Serve with tomato salsa or any cheesy dip or sour cream dip.

  7. Raj, should we mix any other flour along with cornflour in first step. Whil kneading the flour it never binded together and was becoming powder could not roll it at all. Please help.

    1. I never added anything while kneading, it was bit tricky to handle. If you want you can add 1 tbsp maida to bind.

    2. I will try and update. I could never succeed so trashed the mix.
