This zero-oil version of Masala Papad differs from the usual starter in many ways, and not just in the absence of oil! Usually, when deep-fried papads are used to prepare Masala Papad, the oil helps to hold the chopped vegetables and spice powders in place. Here, we have used a layer of peppy green chutney for the purpose. Not only does this bind the toppings with the papad, it also enhances the flavour manifold.

Enjoy this spicy treat occasionally, because moderation is always essential. And always remember to serve this snack immediately on preparation, especially because green chutney is added and the papad will become soggy after a while.

It's difficult to avoid instead of deep frying lets make it healthier by roasting the papads...adding green paste and coriander, onion and tomatoes...amazing!
