Whole Wheat Papdi

Another famous Indian street food is Papdi Chaat. Papdis are generally prepared with all-purpose flour (maida). I wanted to make it a little healthy so I used whole wheat flour and baked the papdis, and these tasted good. Next recipe will be Papdi Chaat, stay tuned. 

Tip for Papdi Chaat: Whole Wheat Papdis are a little more crispy than the regular papdis, so when you prepare Papdi Chaat recipe dip the papdis in the yogurt (curd) for at least 5-10 mins prior to serving.
