Fried Papad
Fried papad sprinkled with spices taste good.

Preparation Method

  1. Mix and dry grind the cleaned dals to flour. To it, add pepper and asafoetida. Keep aside.
  2. Boil water in a big pan. To boiling hot water, add saji khar and salt. Let it boil for 3-4 minutes. Switch off the flame. Allow the water to cool completely.
  3. Take the top water and strain it.* Use this water as needed, to bind a stiff dough.
  4. Pound the dough with a pestle till the dough is soft and pliable. Keep applying little oil to the dough. It should be smooth and of rolling consistency.
  5. Divide the dough into 3 portions.
  6. Make each portion into a long cylindrical roll.
  7. Cut each roll into equal sized slices with a thread.
  8. Lightly rub oil on the dough portions to avoid stickiness. Roll little thicker papads of equal size.
