About Masala Papad

Masala papad recipe is made with papad then topped with a mixture of onions, tomatoes and a few spices.

In some other variations, people fry the papad. But I like the roasted one. Because it is prepared in 1-2 minutes.

Crunchy papad and mixture on top of it give a perfectly soft and crunchy flavour.

This snack can be used as a starter before the meal or stop the craving at midnight or as a perfect evening snack.

There is one more interesting way to serve it. Make a cone of roast papad and fill the mixture in it.

Ingredients for Masala Papad

  • Papad: I have used urad dal papad of lijjat papad. You can use any papad you like.
  • Vegetables and fruit: I have used onion, tomatoes, green chillies, coriander, and pomegranate seeds. You can add or remove vegetables according to your preferences and availability.
  • Spices: In the spices, you required roasted jeera powder, salt, red chilli powder, black pepper powder, black salt, and chaat masala. These spices are enough for giving taste to it.
  • Bhujia: In bhujia, I have used aloo bhujia. You can add some fine sev or zero number sev.
