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.

Tips:

  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.
