Papad Delight / ಪಾಪಡ್ ಡಿಲೈಟ್

ಕನ್ನಡದಲ್ಲಿ ಓದಲು ಇಲ್ಲಿ ಕ್ಲಿಕ್ ಮಾಡಿ.

Normally, our week-end lunch consists of some or the other special items every time. During week days, hubby carries his lunch box daily and he will be there only for the dinner. That too, he prefers chapathi and some subzi. Anyways, its good to have light food in the night time. So, anything I need to try new means it will be on the week-ends most of the times!
In hotels, if we order the starter item as Papad, they will serve crispy papad with onion, carrot, etc, veggies spread. Always we love to eat that papads there and in home also, I will decorate the papad in the same way as they do in hotels. Hubby also loves to have this starter for the week-end lunch :) People who won't like to eat raw vegetables also can try this healthy and delicious Papad Delight!    
Due to health consciousness, I normally go for roasting the papad instead of deep frying. If you are using the oven, its damn easy to roast the papad! Just keep them in microwave mode under high temp, and your papads will be ready in just 30 - 40 seconds! 


Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Servings: 3

Ingredients:
Lijjat Papad - 3 nos
Onion - 1
Finely chopped coriander leaves - 2 tsp
1 small carrot
Red chilli powder - 1 spoon or to taste
Grated coconut 3 - 4 tsp
1 small tomato
Lime squeeze - according to taste
Salt to taste
Pepper powder (optional) - for taste


Method:
Chop the onion and tomato finely. Grate the carrot and keep ready.
Roast the papads or if you wish, you can deep fry them.
Just before serving, combine chopped onion, tomato, grated carrot and coconut and chopped coriander leaves in a mixing bowl. Add salt and red chilli powder for taste and mix well.
If the papad is spicy, reduce the quantity of chilli powder in the veggie mixture.
Spread the veggie mixture evenly on all the 3 papads. Add few drops of lime squeeze for taste and serve immediately. Sprinkle some pepper powder for taste if you wish.   


Tips:
  • You can try adding different veggies, or different masalas like chat masala to make it more delightful.
  • Eat the papads immediately after spreading the veggies. Papad will become smooth and lose the taste if kept for long time.
