My Version Of Masala Papad Recipe

Masala Papad

Masala Papar

During my childhood I loved to read books & while I was so occupied I loved to eat countless Masala Papads. This is how we used to make it then.

Ingredients:

Some Papads

1 minced Tomato

1 minced Onion

1 minced green chillies

Some Desi Ghee

2 pinches of red chilli powder

Method:

Roast the papad on a slow gas fire so that it takes on a uniform yellow color & does not burn.

Sprinkle minced tomato, onion & green chilli evenly on the roast papad.

Now heat a little desi ghee in a cooking spoon & add red chillies to the ghee, wait a bit & sprinkle on the roast papad sprinkled with the minced vegetables.

The spicy snack is ready to eat!
