Colorful Mini Masala Papads/Poppadams

This is not a unique thing to many, just that when i made it i couldn't resist clicking away and so had to put it up here.We got these cute lil papads this time from a local shop, i quickly felt the need to have masala papads, this can be called "instant" (other than the frying time), i assembled the whole thing in about 10 minutes.As yummy a snack that they are, its visually-appetizing too!

If you don't have the mini papads, no worries at all, just use the normal sized pepper or masala papads, break them into quarters,fry and make the toppings!

Usually the urad dal/ black lentils papads are used as they can withstand the moisture from the salad!

You need

Pepper masala papads/ i used small mini papads 10 nos
Cucumber a small piece grated
Onion small chopped finely
Tomato small chopped
Cilantro chopped
Salt to taste
Lime juice 1 tsp
Pepper/Chilli powder to taste
Chaat masala to taste

  • You need to make a salad with the vegetables and the masalas.Add the lime juice and mix well.Keep aside.
  • Fry the papads. Add the topping on to the papads, a sprinkling of chaat masala and cilantro to finish it off.

  • Just before you have to serve these, assemble the masala papads by adding a tiny spoonful of the salad onto the papad.

  • Serve with a drink of your choice!

- This topping is the most basic one, you can use any salsa recipe of your choice.
- Add a slice of cheese with the topping.
Just get your imagination going!
