  1. Sieve the maize flour and plain flour together in a deep bowl.
  2. Add the oil, carom seeds and salt and knead into a semi-stiff dough using enough warm water.
  3. Divide the dough into 18 equal portions.
  4. Roll out a portion into a 100 mm. (4”) diameter circle using little plain flour for rolling and prick it with a fork at regular intervals.
  5. Heat the oil in a deep non-stick kadhai and deep-fry it till it turns light brown in colour from both the sides.
  6. Once it turns light brown, immediately shape it into a shell (‘u’ shape) using a pair of tongs and a frying laddle and continue deep-frying while holding the shell till it turns golden brown in colour from both the sides. Drain it on an absorbent paper.
  7. Repeat steps 4 to 6 to make 17 more taco shells.
  8. Allow it to cool completely, store in an air-tight container and use as required.
