    Yours is the prettiest plate of nachos I've ever seen! For more authentic Mexican taste, use masa, or flour of corn that has been treated with lime. It adds its own flavor. And the carom or ajwain seeds and cumin aren't traditional for the chips.

    Thank you for your ideas. Adding carom seeds is completely optional. I used it to get diffrent taste some indian flavour i say:)
