Masala papad is an easily prepared Indian snack. It uses papad, a crisp, round wafer made of urad dal (black gram dal), as the main ingredient. The papads come in a variety of flavors. The wet papadsare sun-dried and preserved for months or even a year. You can fry or roast these dried papads whenever needed. This is served as a side dish for lunch or as a starter along with green chutney.
Masala papad preparation is very easy. The ingredients are simple and readily available. They are a perfect snack that you can prepare and enjoy in a few minutes. You will certainly relish the combination of various vegetables and spices. They are crunchy, delicious, light and appetizing. While the masala papads are made of the standard combo of vegetables and chili powder, you can use your creativity and add vegetables like bell pepper, cucumber, and boiled sweet corn kernels, as well as other spice powders.
- Dark gram is rich in proteins and minerals like calcium, phosphorus, and magnesium that aid in the development of solid bones.
- If you are worried about eating fried food, then this recipe works great with roasted papad instead.
How to Make It
Tip: If you have leftover toppings that you prepared for the snack and ran out of papads, you can store them in Vaya Tyffyn boxes. You can transfer them to this steel tiffin box and store overnight in the fridge. These tiffin boxes will keep your vegetables and spice mix fresh for use the next day.
