popular Indian snack - baked flat discs made of four and spices

Hiya folks!!

This is my first outstation post in a long time. As you must have read here, I am not in Bangalore, but at my in-laws place near Mangalore on the West Coast. I've been enjoying my time off but definitely not the heat. We can feel the full effect of summer out here. I'm just thankful for the bursts of rain at night which make it cool enough for me to sleep.

And of course, the ice creams!! If you have come to Mangalore and missed the ice creams here, you have missed out on a lot of deliciousness. From when I can remember, Mangalore had the best ice creams ever!! I never miss a chance to hog on those when I'm out here.

While the ice creams are tempting, this post is not even remotely related to ice creams, but I could really not get them out of my head. This post is about a much healthier snack - Papdis, that have been baked. Papdi are just flat discs made from wholewheat flour and flavored with some spices. Traditionally these are deep fried, but I baked them, just to keep them guilt free. And they tasted just as delicious, but now I can eat a lot more without worrying.

Papdis can either be eaten as a tea time or mid day snack or can be added to other dishes, most popularly - Chaats. Chaat is a collection of Indian street food and many of them use papdis as the building blocks for them. They are the crunch element of the dish. They are added to Masala Puri, Papdi Chaat, Sev Puri etc. You can either make plain papdi, where you don't add any spices but personally I like ajwain (carrom) and jeera (cumin) a lot, so I never skip them out.

Also, I suggest get on to making papdis fast and log onto the blog soon. I have a new recipe planned that uses these crunchy papdis in a simple yet fabulously delicious dish.

Until then, goodbye from the West Coast!

Baked Papdi


popular Indian snack - baked flat discs made of four and spicesFlat round discs made with flour and spices, a popular vegan Indian snack.

Recipe Type:  Snacks
Cuisine:            Indian
Prep Time:     60 minutes
Cook time:     14-20 minutes
Total time:     80 minutes
Yield:                75 papdi


Ingredients:


0.5 cup Wholewheat Flour (50 gms)
0.5 cup All Purpose Flour (50 gms)
0.5 tsp Carrom seeds
0.5 tsp Cumin seeds
3 tsp Oil
0.5 tsp Salt
0.75 cup Water
Oil for brushing
Wholewheat flour for dusting

Method:


1. Take wholewheat flour, all purpose flour, carrom seeds and cumin seeds in a large bowl.
2. Add the oil and salt. You may need less/more salt, so add it little by little.
3. Start by adding half the water and knead the dough. Add more water by the spoonful as required.
4. The dough should have a stiff consistency.
5. Cover and rest the dough for 20-30 minutes.
6. Divide the dough into 2 balls and roll one of them out until it is 1 millimeter thick.
7. Use a cookie cutter to cut the dough into papdis. You can also use a bottle /box cover to do the same. 
8. Do the same with the second ball of dough.
9. Preheat the oven to 180 degree Celsius.
10. Grease a baking sheet and place the papdis on it in one layer. They should not overlap.
11. Using a fork, prick holes into the papdis.
12. Brush oil over them and bake until golden.
13. Mine took 14-15 minutes to bake. If the papdis are rolled out thin they will start burning, so I suggest checking on them after 12 minutes.
14. Allow the papdis to cool completely before storing in an air tight box.
