Crispy Beef Taco

For the taco shell:
Maized flour (Indian Corn flour)-1/4 cup
Refined flour (corn starch )        -1/2 cup
Water                                       -1/2 to 3/4 cup
Oil                                             - 1tsp
Salt to taste
Oil for frying

Mix both flour,add salt and oil.Knead into a dough with water.Divide into 14 or 15 portions.Roll out each portions into a 4 inch in diameter rounds and prick with a fork.Deep fry them till crisp and brown.When frying fold each round onto half to form a U shape.Drain in a grease absorbing paper.

For inside filling:
   As my husband prefers crispy beef than the normal juicy beef taco filling,I made it by slightly frying the minced meat with the spices.
Minced beef             - 2 pounds
Onion(medium)        - 1 chopped
Tomato(small )         - 1 chopped
Tomato salsa            - 2 cup
Tomato Ketchup      - 11/2 cup
Cumin powder         - 1 tsp
Garlic cloves            - 2
Chilli powder            - 1 tbsp
Pepper powder        - 1 tbsp
Paprika                   - 2 tbsp(optional)
salt to taste
Cheddar cheese       - 1 cup shredded
Lettuce                    - 1 head cut into thin shreds

Heat oil in a pan,add chopped onion,garlic chopped and saute .Now add the minced meat and cook till it turns brown .Now add cumin powder,chilli powder,pepper powder,paprika,salt to this and saute it till the beef becomes crisp.Remove from fire.

Now in the taco shells,put in the beef first then salsa or ketchup,then tomato chopped and finely shredded lettuce and shredded cheese.
