Pesto Chicken Tostada


Tostadas are my best go to meals on a lazy day. It’s is a Mexican dish usually made with crispy fried tortillas with a lot of toppings. Tostadas became a delicious and hearty way to extend and make use of leftover tortillas which were no longer fresh enough to fold for tacos but still fresh enough to be eaten. For me, it’s like an open faced sandwich where instead of bread we use tortilla. Usually these are prepared using corn tortilla, however, I have given it a twist and prepared it using Ragi Roti or Ragi Tortilla. Ragi is also know as Finger Millet which a rich source of fibre and helps lower cholesterol level and also helps in weight loss.

Pesto Chicken Tostada is an absolutely healthy and yummy recipe which calls for some boiled chicken mixed with pesto, veggies topped on a toasted Ragi Chapati. To add some seasoning, I’ve used Mexican spice that takes this dish to absolutely another level making it even more delicious giving it a Mexican touch. Ofcourse, you can feel free to use any chapati or tortillas you have available at home.
