how to make papdi for chaat /papri recipeThere is one famous spot in my hometown Salem where chaat items are a big hit!since my college days they are running their business like a rock star.So many die-hard fans are there till now so they are open on all days even on Sundays and this time too when I visited my Amma’s place I had my samosa mix an awesome chaat item (samosa’s dunk in peas sauce with spicy tangy chutneys)sitting at my usual place where I would usually sit all these years!it was really an enjoyable evening sitting talking with my H!it was literally after many days of his hectic schedule that I had a chance to relax and chat with him.how to make papdi for chaat /papri recipeSome day I too will try this wonderful samosa mix for sure.whenever eating bhel puri I use to enjoy the crispy crunchy pieces that are mixed to this bhel puri chaat more than the crunchiness of onions.Those crunchy flat disks that are added to chaats can be easily prepared at home and sometime the proportion could be add half and half maida with wheat flour which tastes super good but habitually only maida is added but both way it tastes super good.You can add baking powder also but I have not added and adding ajwain gives a nice flavour to this papdi.Even ghee can be added instead of oil which will give nice flavour for sure.

Notes

Some add even baking powder to it you can very well add it. When making the dough itself little ghee is also added to lift the flavour. Don't roll the papdi too thin. Adding ajwain is important for this and no ingredient will replace it(even cumin). Instead of maida you can add half and half of both maida and wheat flour.
