Papdi | Puri | Puri for Sev Puri

Papdis are crisp flat puris used in Indian Chaats. Its a versatile snack that can be eaten for Sev Puri, Bhel Puri and it even tastes good as is. One can also say papdi are crisp and flaky Indian crackers. I never thought it would be so easy to make this at home, but trust me once you have everything in place the end result is worth the efforts.

  • In a bowl, mix maida rava salt and ghee and rub gently forming crumbs till you can hold the mixture together. Rubbing ghee properly is very important as it makes the puris more flaky and crispy.
