Papad is a wafer thin disc made from ground lentils and legumes.They are served roasted or fried and make a great appetizer or even a side dish.This is a slightly different way of frying the papads without deep frying them.

2 Papads
¼ Medium Onion , finely chopped
½ Medium Tomato , deseeded and finely chopped
5 Sprigs Cilantro , finely chopped
1 Green Chili , finely chopped, to taste
½ tsp Lemon Or Lime Juice
½ tsp Chaat Masala
Salt , to taste
Red Chili Powder , to taste

1.Mix the vegetables for the toppings and also add the spices to the vegetable mix.
2.For prepping the papad you have many options,You can dry roast the papad in microwave for 1 minute.Another option is to dry roast the papad on a griddle (tawa).
For frying the papad,you can either deep fry them(not an healthy option) or the best way to achieve the deep fried taste without frying them is to put a teaspoon of oil on tawa and roast the papad on it.
3.Finally sprinkle the toppings generously on the papad and serve hot.
