Masala Papad Recipe - a quick, lip smacking finger snack which goes well as a side dish with any thing.
recipeIngredient (used american measuring cup, 1 cup = 250 ml)
  • ¼th cup oil for shallow frying papads.
  • 4-5 large urad/moong dal papads or 6-7 small urad/moong dal papads
  • ½ cup + 2 tbsp finely chopped onion
  • ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp chopped coriander leaves
  • 1 tsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp kashmiri red chili powder/red chili powder
  • 1 tsp pepper powder
  • 1 tsp chat masala
  • black salt as required
  • ⅓rd cup nylon sev (optional)
How to make the recipe?
  1. Combine ½ cup + 1 tablespoon finely chopped onion, ½ cup finely chopped tomatoes, 1 tablespoon of chopped coriander leaves.
  2. Squeeze 1 teaspoon of lime juice and mix all nicely. Place aside.
  3. You could either fry the papad as it is.
  4. I have cut them into squares.
  5. Heat oil in a pan. Add small piece of papad if the papad fluffs and rises then your papads are ready to be fried.
  6. Fry papad by pressing the back of spatula or spoon. Otherwise if the papads fluff then it will be difficult to add toppings. Remove the papads with a slotted spoon or tongs. Place aside on an absorbent napkin to absorb excess oil from the papads. Alternatively you could just roast the papad.
  7. Add the toppings and spread across the fried/roasted papad. Sprinkle chat masala, red chili powder, pepper powder and black salt as required. Lastly garnish with nylon sev and serve your masala papads immediately.
1. Just add the toppings to the papad before you serve else they would get soggy.
2. You could either roast or fry papad.
