Papdi Chaat

   
Papdi Chat is a  delicious North Indian snack made out of crispy wafers and ingredients like curd,tomatoes, tamarind sauce, coriander sauce, potatoes and sev. The best part is that it is a delicious and tangy  snack and the taste can be regulated during the preparation depending upon your taste for spice or sweet.  During evening hours if you wish to treat your family and friends with a fast to prepare and tasty snack without much hassles, I highly recommend that you serve them with papdi Chat. And you can make the papdis in advance to save time. So make this delicious chat and  see the plates empty in front of you within minutes. Also Happy Ganesha Chaturthi and Eid to all my Blogger Friends in advance.
                                                                                                         
Ingredients:
1 cup All purpose flour
½ tsp Ajwain
1 tbsp refind oil
A pinch of Soda
½ tsp Salt
Water to knead the dough
Oil for frying

Method to make Papdi:
In a bowl mix flour, salt, soda, ajwain and oil. Add water a little at a time and knead the dough to make a firm dough. Cover the dough with a damp cloth and let it sit for 20 minutes.
                                                                  
Now there are two ways to make papdi : first way is to divide the dough in equal parts (25-28) and roll into thin circles ( 2 ½ inch) and prick each thin circle with fork (this is to ensure that  these doesn't puff up while frying). Keep aside these circles for 10 minutes before frying.
Another way is to divide the dough into 3-4 equal parts and roll into 9 inch diameter (it should be neither too thick or thin). Now prick the rolled dough and cut small rounds with a small cookie cutter. Keep aside the ready to fry small circle for 10 minutes.
Heat vegetable oil in a frying pan on medium heat and slide 2-3 papdis at a time, flip and fry till both sides are light brown and crips. Drain and keep on paper towels. Continue frying the remaining papdi in batches. When these papdis cool down completely, you can store them in an air tight container.

                                                                       
For Chaat:
2 boiled Potatoes
1 Onion, finely diced
2 cups Yogurt, chilled
2-3 tsp Red chilly powder
1 tsp Black salt powder
1 tsp Chat masala
Salt to taste
1 tbsp roasted and powdered Cumin seeds
1/2 cup  Sev
Finely chopped coriander leaves for garnish

 To arrange Papdi Chaat:
 Pour yogurt with salt in a bowl and whisk till smooth. Keep aside.
                                                                                    
 Arrange 5-6 papdis in a plate and layer each papdi with chopped potato, onion and add yogurt to cover the papdis. 
                                                                   
Sprinkle red chilly podwed and black salt over the layer.
                                                                    
 Pour Green chutney and tamarind chutney over papdi. 
                                                                            
Sprinkle sev, chat masala, roasted cumin powder and coriander leaves. 
                                                                                  
And serve immediately or it may become soggy.
