Types Of Indian Papads And Its Benefits

Posted by Admin on January, 15, 2022

We have witnessed many papad recipes till now. It is generally the thin wafer that is described as flatbread or cracker. Preparation is not so hard if you include roasted or eaten fried, dried lentils, etc. These recipes are processed to utilise different tastes and some inbuilt flavours as per individual needs.

Papad can also be stuffed and deep-fried with some spices. Peanut oil and salt may be added for making the dough solid and flavourful with seasoned spices such as cumin, chilli, black pepper, or garlic. The composition could be manipulated by adding several different ingredients like pulse flour, cereal flour, spice mixes, soya flour, etc. Sometimes we add baking soda to increase its fluffiness.

The papad-making dough looks like a round or thin bread, and hence it can be dried and cooked by deep-frying. It is a snack added with Indian cuisines. The key ingredient to make papad is urad dal. It is one of the best snacks in Indian tradition that cannot be skipped in wedding meals.
