Layerd papdi

During festivals when we are busy preparing sweets and savoury stuff, we prepare something special which we can enjoy when all hullabaloo of festival is over and we just want to relax and enjoy our evening tea/coffee with our favorite snack. Layered papdi is one of my favorite snack, to have it with tea or I use them to prepare spicy chatpata chaat…..

Dough should be really tight otherwise we can’t roll it thin. Cover the dough and leave it for 15/20 minutes.
After 15 minutes knead the dough again, divide it into equal parts and prepare same  sized balls.

Roll them very thin, in round shape on neat kitchen counter and keep on parchment /butter paper.

Fold one round disc along the center and then again fold it to get 1/4th of its original size Slightly press it and prick it with knife from all sides to avoid puffing.

Also, inserting cloves in between will help in keeping the layers flat.
