Papdi Chaat

Papdi chaat or  papri chaat is a popular and traditional fast food or street food from Indian subcontinent. Papri chaat is prepared using crisp fried wafers known as papri or papdi along with boiled chick peas, boiled or fried potatoes, yogurt / curd, sweet and green chutney, chopped onion tomato and finally garnished with sev and chaat masala. Papdi is prepared with plain flour dough adding  cumin seeds and  oil to give it nice crunch. Then they are rolled out thin cut in circles and deep fried in oil until nice and crisp.

Remember Suhaali which I prepared last week from same state snacks theme, I have used those Suhali's as papdi / papri here. This delicious and lip smacking dish goes to day 15 of Mega Marathon theme " Sweets and Snacks".

I keep papdis handy to make quick fix, yummy chaats like these. As Vaishali mentioned the fried potatoes is an interesting addition. And I would kill for those red pomegranate arils. :)
