Rice papad is like any time snack. Tastes great with tea. In my house we also like to eat with khichdi. Even thinking about making papad sounds so complicated and time consuming. But if you make in small batch or few at a time it is very simple, easy, and fun thing to do. It’s good idea to make papad when it’s sunny outside so you can have dry papad in one day.
Let’s make papad.
2 cups rice flour.
1 1/2 cup water.
1 tsp cumin seeds crushed.
1/2 tsp papadkhar.
2 tsp oil.
2 green chili crushed.
1/2 tsp salt or less because papadkhar is also salty.
On medium heat, boil water in a saucepan. While water is boiling, add all the ingredients except flour. Once water start boiling with all ingredients, turn down the heat to low and start adding rice flour slowly while stirring with wooden spoon. Continue stirring until all flour incorporated with water. Cover the lid and let it cook on very low heat for few minutes. Stir couple of times. Turn off the heat and let it rest for few minutes. The dough should be ready by now. Take little oil in hands and knead dough to smooth, without any lumps in it, and roll it in to log like shape.
Cut into small round balls. Flatten each ball, like roti, with a rolling pin into a thin circle. Sometimes it can take practice so if you mess up, just roll into a ball and try again. You can dust the flattened dough with flour so it does not stick. Take a large plates, place papad in such a way so they won’t stick to each other.
If it’s sunny you can dry outside in same day or if you have to dry inside that’s OK too. Your papad should be dry and ready to enjoy in couple of days.
