Masala Papad

Summer is here and that means two things – scorching heats and kids summer vacations! It is impossible to spend any time longer than absolutely necessary to stand in the kitchen these days but at the same time, kids would love snacks every now and then. Forget kids, I would like quick snacks during weekends and I am always on the lookout for simple yet delicious snack recipes – that’s how I made Masala Papad at home 🙂

It really is very simple and the recipe itself is quite customizable according to the taste preferences. I stuck to the Masala Papad recipe the way we like it – slightly on the spicier side with lots of chaat masala and fresh coriander. It is one of the easiest snacks to make at home but in a restaurant you are usually charged a bomb for the same. With some hot Chai or coffee, it is absolutely delicious. It makes for a great appetizer too, just that it is better to let everyone fill up their papad as they like it!

Masala Papad is crispy, crunchy and full of flavor. More than anything, it is one of the best low calorie snacks! I usually don’t fry my papad and instead grease it with very little oil, microwave it – all it takes is 30secs to cook it to perfection at full power. If you have any qualms about using a microwave, simply shallow fry the papad. All it needs is the onion tomato masala and when you are ready to serve, fill the papad up and pop it into your mouth! And as I said it is easy to customize – add some boiled potatoes, peanuts, whole moong beans, pomegranate kernels or sev – it is just delicious anyway 🙂
