Your grandmas would surely have told you of their younger days when foods like papads were not available in shops and had to be made at home. Their eyes usually mist wistfully at the thought of the fresh and vibrant taste of those homemade treats.

Well, here we show you how to make papad at home – but not the traditional, time-consuming ones. This instant whole wheat flour version is easy to make and can be made quickly by anybody. With a dash of spices, it also has a nice masaledar taste. It uses no soda and does not involve any cumbersome steps like drying.

Once you get the dough right, you can roll the papads and deep-fry them immediately. Jut make sure you roll the papads as thinly as possible and prick them lightly with a fork before frying.

When rolling a portion of the dough, make sure the rest of the dough is kept covered with a damp muslin cloth – otherwise they will become dry and difficult to roll. Now, you can get started with your Instant Whole Wheat Masala Papads and surprise your whole family with the special homemade treat!

You can also make Khichiya Papad at home and serve them as Roasted Khichiya Papad or Fried Khichiya Papad .

As I don’t prefer fried foods, is it possible to dry the papads & roast them when required
