What’s chaat without papdi? Indeed, this crisp, disc-shaped savoury is a must-have on any chaat counter, because it adds an exciting crunch to many a chaat preparation including bhel puri, dahi papdi chaat, and so on. The best part about this semolina plus wheat flour papdi is that it does not get soggy too soon, so you can feel its magic till the very last spoonful!

In Fried Papdi, you added sooji to atta, but didn''t add this in baked Papdi. 1). Could you please explain the role of suji in fried Papdi? 2). What will happen if I add this (suji) to baked Papdi also?

   Hi Subhabrata, Sooji provides a grainy texture with crispiness. If you wish, you can add it to the baked puri dough too but, we have tried the recipe here and don''t feel the need to add it so, we simply skipped it.

We urgently needed some papdi but were not able to find it. This recipe helped us a lot. It is really fantastic and easy, even the ingredients are not tough to arrange.

This recipe tastes so delicious. Just like the puris we get outside. First i thought its a little tedious to make roll these many puris at home. Then what i did is, i roll a huge 10 inch circle, and cut into circles with the help of a top of the bottle. It was very quick. The best part is that it is made with 100% wheat flour and no plain flour is used.
