How to make Papdi Recipe

  1. Preheat the oven to 200C.

  2. To begin making the homemade Papdi, we will first have to make the dough.Mix all the flour, ajwain, oil and salt together. Add water a little at a time and knead the papdi dough until it becomes firm and smooth and firm. It should not be soft.

  3. You can make 30 small balls and roll them out thin about 1-½ inches in diameter

  4. Or you can divide the dough into two portions and roll out into a big large circle and cut small rounds using a cookie cutter.

  5. Make sure the papdi you roll out are thin.

  6. After rolling prick the papdi with a fork all round to prevent it from puffing when baked

  7. Place the papdi in the oven and bake then until browned. Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. As they continue to get crisp from the heat in them. These Papdi are little more brittle than their fried counterparts, but at home we still love them. 

  8. You could also alternatively deep fry these rolled out portions until golden brown.

  9. Allow it to cool and store the Papdi in an air tight container. 

  10. Use the Papdi to make chaats like Mumbai Style BhelpuriSev Papdi Chaat, and many more. You sure can innovate your topping, may be like a chilli-cheese, or chilli corn and cheese, etc.
