Masala Papad

How to make Masala Papad

Most appetizing starter in Indian cuisine is crunchy masala papad bites. The simplest and most satisfying starter which is deep fried and topped with spicy onion, tomato and cilantro leaves. Ask any guzzler whats his favourite side and he would answer 'masala papad' as fast as he would guzzle .. so here is the one to the happy guzzlers :-)

Here is what we need -

  • 2 papads (Indian store bought)
  • 1/2 small onion - I like to use red onion
  • 1/2 tomato
  • cilantro
  • chat masala
  • chili powder
  • lemon
  • nylon sev (Indian store bought)
  • oil to deep fry

Whats Next -

Take very little oil in the small pan. Once hot fry papad in it by flipping side once.

Very fine chop onion, tomato and cilantro. Sprinkle it on the papad. Put some sev on it.

Dab some chaat masala and red chili powder. Drop some lemon juice. serve it as soon as you make it.



  1. This is great to serve a papad.Frying will obviously taste good but I prefer to microwave my papad.

  2. Hey microwaved is so much healthier right? I always kinda do that but sometimes its just feels good to eat fried ones .. they taste better I feel ;-)
