Masala Papad

Ingredients to make Masala Papad

  • 3 plain big size Papads
  • 1 big/ 2 medium sized onions, chopped very finely
  • 1 big/ 2 medium firm tomatoes, chopped very finely
  • 2 green chillies (optional), chopped very finely
  • 2 tbsp chopped coriander Leaves, chopped very finely
  • 1 tsp salt or as per taste
  • 1 tbsp lemon juice
  • 3 tsp chaat masala (1 tsp per Papad)
  • oil for frying the Papad

How to make Masala Papad

  1. Fry the papad in hot oil till it's done. Do not brown it and let it have its original golden colour. Take it out on a plate lined with absorbent paper and flatten it with the frying ladle.
  2. This will absorb excess oil and flatten it out as well. Do this while the Papad is hot as once it crisps up it would crumble.
  3. Place the flattened papad on a serving plate. Mix all the vegetables and coriander leaves in a bowl. Add salt, lemon juice and mix it well.
  4. Spread 1 and 1/2- 2 tbsp of this salad on each papad and sprinkle 1 tsp chaat masala on top.
  5. Serve immediately with a slice of lime on the side.

My Tip:

This has to be eaten as soon as it is made, as the veggies soften the crisp papad in a short while.So when you bite into it, the mouth should revel with the crispiness of the papad, the sharpness of the onion, the sweetness of tomatoes, sour lemon juice and tangy Chaat Masala and its a WOOOW experience altogether! Use the big size Papads you get in the market. I use plain Urad or Moong though you can use mixed masala or Punjabi Masala as well.Bikaneri Papads can also be used!
