Texas FinServ shree raghunath temple
Papdi Chaat

By: Manjula
Region: Indian
Dish:Vegetarian - Breakfast/Tiffins/Snacks
Servings: 4


1 cup all purpose flour (maida or plain flour)
1/4 cup semolina flour (sooji)
2 tablespoons oil
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/3 cup + 2 tablespoon lukewarm water

To garnish the papdi:

Boiled potato, peeled and sliced into thin rounds (about the thickness of a quarter or 1/16″)
Boiled or canned chickpeas (rinsed and drained)
Plain yogurt
Roasted cumin seed powder (bhuna jeera)
Red chili powder
Hari cilantro chutney (recipe available on my site)
Tamarind chutney


In a bowl mix flour, sooji, salt and oil.
Add the water a little at a time while kneading until it forms a firm dough
Cover the dough and set aside for 15 minutes or more.
Divide the dough into about 3 equal parts.
Take one section of the dough and roll it into 8″ diameter, fairly thin about thickness of dime. Do the same with the remaining 2 parts.
Prick firmly the rolled dough about 1/4 inch apart with a fork, (this is done so the papdi do not puff while frying) and cut them in about 1 1/2″ squares with a sharp knife.
Heat the oil in a frying pan on medium heat.
The frying pan should have at least 1 1/2 inch of oil. To check if the oil is ready, just put a small piece of dough in the oil. The dough should sizzle right away but come up to the surface slowly. If the dough rises immediately, let the oil cool slightly and try again.
Make sure to place just enough papdi to cover top of the oil in the frying pan in a single layer. Don’t overcrowd. Fry the papdi until both sides are a light golden-brown.
Remove cooked papdi with a slotted or mesh spoon and transfer to a plate.
Continue cooking the remaining papdi in batches until all the dough is gone.
After the papdi cool to room temperature they should be crisp.
Papdi can be stored in airtight container for 1 month.


This particular chaat, Papdi Chaat, is made of crispy wafers garnished with a delicious combination of potatoes, chickpeas, seasoned yogurt, and flavorful spices and chutneys
