How to make Baked Papdi Chaat

    For Baked Oats Papdi


    • Preheat the oven to 200 C
    • Combine the flour, oats, ajwain and ghee together. Add water a little at a time and knead the papdi dough until it becomes firm and smooth and firm. It should not be soft
    • You can make 20 small balls and roll them out thin about 1-½ inches in diameter
    • Or you can divide the dough into two portions and roll out into a big large circle and cut small rounds using a cookie cutter
    • Make sure the papdi’s you roll out are thin
    • After rolling prick, the papdi's with a fork all round to prevent it from puffing when baked
    • Place the oat papdi's in the oven and bake then until browned
    • Remove from the oven and allow them to cool completely. As they continue to get crisp from the heat in them
    • These papdi's are little more brittle than their fried counterparts, but at home we still love them


    For Papdi Chaat


    • Papdi Chaat is all about arranging and layering the different ingredients on a platter
    • In a large bowl, combine the cooked moong, the 1/2 teaspoon of chaat masala, 1/2 teaspoon of cumin powder and a pinch of red chilli powder. Stir well to combine. Check the salt and spice levels and adjust to suit your taste. Keep this aside
    • Lay the papdi’s in large platter or in individual plates
    • Spoon the moong mixture over the papdi's. Drizzle the date and tamarind chutney, green chutney over each papdi. Sprinkle the onion, coriander leaves and sev.
