These papdis can be used for a variety of chats. I made them a day in advance and made 3 chats and enjoyed. Hubby liked the papdis as such so had to preserve it from him ;) These are quite addictive to have it as such too.

Papdi Recipe

My Notes:
  • Dont forget to prick holes with a fork , else the papdis will puff up.
  • Adding ajwain gives a nice falvour to the papdis. Keeps well for 4-5 days when stored in airtight container.
