Papdis are crispy small flat puris used in Indian chaats. Making papadi at home requires slight effort and time, but that's worth it. Learn how to make fried papdi for chaat at home in a step-by-step fashion.

To make papri recipe, you need only 4 ingredients – maida, carom seeds, salt and oil. Knead a firm dough using maida, carom seeds, salt and little oil. Roll into small roundels and deep fry them till golden brown in colour. Crispy fried papadis are ready.

Remember to make the papadi dough stiff and to roll it out as thinly as possible. Prick each papadi well before frying to ensure that they do not puff up while deep-frying in oil.

You can choose to roll out small papadis individually or a large dough circle and cut out small rounds using a cookie cutter or vati. The second option is more time and energy saving though.

Moreover you can can replace plain flour (maida) with whole wheat flour or also make these papdis using a combination of the two flours. Make large quantities of this recipe, so that you can rustle up a chaat recipe when unexpected guests arrive!
