Snacks are like our soul food, aren’t they? Though I prefer eating something really healthy and filling even when I am tired, sometimes, it’s fine to give yourself some liberty, ha! Masala Papad is a delicious snack which can be made in no time and is liked by everyone. Masala Papad provides me and my kiddo some really nice munch during supper. Being very easy to make, my kiddo helps me while making Masala Papad and he has kind of gained a mastery over making it within minutes.
The papads can be plain roasted on an open flame, or deep fried in oil, just when you are ready to eat as they get soggy very fast. Papads are really crispy foods that add variety to any dish, be it as simple as white rice, Beetroot Pachadi and Kerala Style Rasam, with Boondi Ki Raita or it can be served even as an appetizer with drinks and mocktails. They are made of different grains, mainly black gram and rice flour. Topping them with tomatoes, onions, coriander, and spices just before serving, makes them even tastier. They can also be eaten anytime when hunger strikes. Serve it as a starter just before an anticipating meal or relish it with high tea, your taste buds will surely thank you for this quickie.
