Layered Papdi

Layered papdi

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

Ingredients :

Maida (white flour) 1 cup
Chiroti/normal rava (optional) 1 tbsp

Take maida in a broad vessel and add salt, ajwain/jeera(carom or cumin seeds) and oil. Mix it well and slowly add water and prepare the tight dough.

Dough for layered papdi is ready

The dough should be really tight otherwise we can’t roll it thin. Cover the dough and leave it for 15/20 minutes for resting.

After 15 minutes knead the dough again, divide it into equal parts and prepare the same sized balls.

make round shape balls

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

roll them round in shape

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 a knife from all sides to avoid puffing.

fold two times in triangle shape

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

Insert loung in between folded papdi
