Masala papad is an Indian snack/ starter, that can be prepared very easily, yet very appetizing and delicious starter. It uses papad – a north Indian style papad specifically. This papad is made out of urad dal (black gram dal) as main ingredient and comes in different flavors. It is made as discs, sun dried and preserved so that it can be fried or toasted when ever needed. This is used as an accompaniment for lunch and at times as starters along with green chutney.
The one we use for masala papad is with black pepper in it. Quite spicy by itself. Making masala papad at home is so very easy. I have made a lot of times after I came here to Singapore. Now for past few years have not made at home. I tasted masala papad first at Chennai and since I love it💜, I started making it quite often when I came here. The ingredients are so simple, that we can guess it by tasting it. Very easily available ingredients. This can be made in parties and sure will be a hit. When you crave for something to snack in weekends, you can make it in a jiffy and can be enjoyed. I always love onion, tomato, coriander, lemon juice along with chaat masala combo. So this sure is a top favorite for me.
