(I know it is a long process, so i often buy them off)

Mix all the papdi ingredients and prepare dough with minimum water. Dont knead the dough.Roll out small biscuit size papdis which should be thick enough to get a crunch. Take knife and poke on them 4-5 times so that they don’t become fluffy when they are deep fried. Deep fry on low heat.

Grind all the ingredients with 1 or 2 tsp of water if required. Adjust salt. It should be spicy.

Keep your date -tamarind chutney ready.
