Masala Papad

Cooks in: 10 Minutes Serves: 2 People

Masala Papad is a popular fast food across India. Roasted papads are topped with onion, tomatoes, and spices and finally deep fried namkeen is sprinkled on top. In this recipe, I used roasted bajra puffs as toping and made the dish completely oil free. A healthy, nutritious guilt free snack is ready within minutes! This is served as a starter in many restaurants. 


  • 2 Big size UradPapads or Lijjat Papads
  • 2 Tbsp Each of finely chopped (onions, carrots, cabbage, tomatoes, cucumber, coriander leaves)
  • 1/4 Cup Roasted Bajra Puffs
  • 1/2 Tsp Red Chilli Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Roasted Cumin Powder
  • 1/2 Tsp Chaat Masala
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Lemon Juice


  1. In a wide bowl take all the chopped veggies, chilli powder, cumin powder, chat masala, salt and lemon juice. Mix well.
  2. Roast the papads and place them on 2 plates.
  3. Spoon the veggies on the papads.
  4. Finally sprinkle bajra puffs and serve immediately.
