How to make The Homemade Hard Taco Shells Recipe
To begin making the Homemade Taco Shells Recipe, we will first preheat oven to 180 C.
Place top rack of oven on middle level and line bottom rack with a drip tray or even foil.
Sieve the makki ka atta flour, maida and salt together in a deep bowl. Add oil and little warm water at a time and knead into a stiff dough.
Divide the Taco dough into 15 equal portions.
Roll out a portion into a 4 inch diameter circle by dusting in maida while rolling.
Once rolled, prick the taco dough with a fork. This will prevent it from puffing.
Next drape the corn taco on the baking grill rack. They will spread over two rows of the grill rack. Once you have arranged all the tacos in the grill rack like shown in the picture, place them in the oven.
Bake for 7 to 10 minutes until you see the taco are crispy and lightly browned.
Keep a watch on the taco as each oven acts differently. Mine turned over brown the first time I made. So monitor till you understand how the oven behaves with the taco.
Once done, remove the Hard Taco Shells from the oven and allow it to cool completely. The Taco Shells will continue to harden while it cools down.
