Masala Papad – Crispy, crunchy, tangy, spicy, full of flavors……
This is as simple a recipe as it can get. my son loves masala papad. Whenever we go to our favorite food joint that serves really amazing crisp and thin papads he will definitely order these first.
Papads are the essential part of our Indian food. They can be served with pulao, khichdi, dal roti or basic dal chawal. They not only add taste and flavor to the food but also aid in digestions because of all the spices that are added to them.
In Rajasthan Papad is served at the end of a heavy meal to help in digestion. Some people spread a teaspoon of ghee also on them.
There are times when kids need a very light snack. they are not really hungry just something to munch on or to give them a 5-minute break from studies.
These masala Papads are perfect for times like that. Easy to prepare, yummy to munch on and light on stomach 🙂
These can also be served as an appetizer to guests with soup or cold drinks.
