How to make How To Roast A Papad

Stove top Method
  1. To make a Roast Papad, hold the papad with tongs and start roasting the papad evenly on a low-medium flame.

  2. The blisters should be even and golden colored. You should keep shifting the papad so that the papad won't get charred.

  3. Shift the tongs to a roasted part of the papad to roast the side where tongs were held and was hence away from fire.

Microwave Method
  1. To roast a papad in microwave, place one papad inside (Keep away from the center since keeping the papad in middle of the oven plate will result in uneven roasting) and microwave on high for 15 seconds.

  2. Open the door of the equipment, tilt the papad a bit where it hasn't started roasting yet and continue microwaving for 15-20 seconds or till done. Keep a close watch since the papad is easily burnt.

  3. Serve Roasted Papad along with Indian meals.
