Whole Wheat Papdi

Papdis are used to prepare many Indian snacks, these are basically crisp and flaky crackers. Often prepared with all-purpose flour and I wanted to make them a little healthier so used whole wheat flour instead and then baked them. And they tasted equally good!!! Use them for bhalla papdi, papdi chaat or any other appetizer.


  1. If you’re preparing papdi chaat with these then soak them in yogurt (curd) for at least 5-10 mins before preparing the chaat. Since whole wheat papdis are more crispier than the regular ones, this step helps in turning them a little soft
  2. If papdis do not turn out crisp after baking then bake them again for 5-7 mins.

How to make Whole Wheat Papdi:

  1. Take a mixing bowl. Add wheat flour, carom seeds, oil and salt. Mix and it’ll be crumbly. Now add water in portions and make a smooth & firm dough. Cover and keep aside for 20 mins
  2. Divide the dough into 4 equal sized balls. Take a ball, dust it with a little flour and roll it with a rolling-pin. Do not make it too thin. Now depending on the size you want, cut using a lid or a cookie cutter. Prick the papdis with a fork so that they don’t puff. Remove the extra rolled dough and roll it again. Repeat until dough is finished
  3. Pre-heat the oven to 375 degree F or 190 degree C. Line the baking tray with parchment paper and place the papdis. Bake for 15-20 mins or until golden
  4. Your Whole Wheat Papdis are ready. Let them cool down and then store in an airtight container.
