Baked Papdi or Indian style crackers is a healthy version of the regular Papdi and it tastes just as good as the regular fried ones. Here is how to make baked papdi recipe.
Papdi are small, round little disks that are crispy and so irresistible. I remember how as kids, we loved munching on Papdi, when my mother prepared it for all of us siblings. We needed very little else, since we were contented playing around and taking them everywhere we went.
Papdi is deep fried and perhaps, that’s makes them so tasty. But I always feel guilty with the oil when making it for my son and ourselves and so came up with a baked version of this recipe.
This Baked Papdi version I tried out, tastes just as crispy and without the least oil. Now you can munch on them anytime with your kids too, and store them to eat for later. These are perfect to make Papdi Chaat, the recipe for which is coming soon on the website.
