  3. In a large mixing bowl throw in the kidney beans, coriander, spring onion and red Mexican pepper. Mix well.
  4. Heat oil in a frying pan add onions and saute until golden brown.
  5. Now add in the ginger-garlic mince, red chili powder, tomatoes and salt. Mix together and cook on low flame until tomatoes are completely done.
  6. Once sauce-like consistency is formed turn off the heat and let the mixture cool down to room temperature.
  7. Now add this to the kidney beans mixture and stir well until everything is combined. Your Salsa sauce is ready!
  8. For plating put generous spoonfuls of salsa sauce in the middle and arrange papad triangles on the sides. garnish with jalapenos, onions, tomatoes, spring onions and little lemon juice.
  9. Serve immediately with a dollop of mint mayo.

My Tip:

Any kind of chips can be used instead of papad. Also, Nachos is a self pleasing dish therefore add or cut ingredients as per desired taste and liking.
