Papdis are deep fried , crunchy, small chips(bread) made from flour! Either you can make these at home or you can always get them in any indian grocery stores! My advice, go and buy them!

1/2 inch ginger
9-10 mint leaves
1 cup coriander leaves

Other ingredients to serve
(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.
For green chutney
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.
Mash potatoes and chickpeas (or dry peas) with salt . Mix thoroughly and prepare little balls and press them at the centre(small cutlets). Make sure they are smaller than papdi.
Arrange all 5 papdis in a flat plate. Place potato-chickpea cutlet on each papri.
Pour a tsp of green mint chutney. Then pour a tsp date tamarind chutney. Sprinkle some onions, tomato, chopped coriander and sev. Serve immediately.
Tip: if you love yogurt, beat yogurt and pour a tsp of yogurt over chutney.
