Masala Pappadum

"Pappadums " or "pappad" in Hindi are lentil thin sheets which are roasted on flame to make it crisp and crunchy. They are a very common starter/snack in India. They are mostly made with lentils like: black gram(urad daal) and split green beans( yellow moong daal), but in india varities of them are found with different ingredients like Rice, potato, Tapioca(sabut dana), jack fruit and many more.They are very light and quickly prepared. I had made "Masala Pappadum"which is a very common snack in Gujrat and Rajasthan. This starter is best and ideal for cocktail parties and quick to prepare savory for the unexpected guests!!!!
This preparation is for 2 pappad:
raw pappad
2 Pappadum
1 medium tomato(cut into small pieces)
1 medium onion(cut into small pieces)
2 tablespoon chopped coriander leaves
1 teaspoon chaat masala
1 teaspoon lemon juice

In a bowl mix all the vegetables, lemon juice and chaat masala.
Topping for the pappad
Roast the pappad on high flame till they turn crisp.
Roasted pappad
Place a single pappad on a plate. Put the prepared masala on the pappad and serve immediately.

Masala Pappadum is ready!!! enjoy it with tea or cocktail drinks....
ready to eat Masala pappadum

Optional notes:
The ready masala pappad are to be consumed immediately. If kept for longer time they will become soggy.
In case of gas stove these pappadums can be roasted in oven or in microwave.
Another preparation can be presented with the pappad like masala potatoes.
One can also add chopped green chili to get more spicy flavor.
One can prepare the topping in advance and can use it later.
