Masala Papads are a great variation to plain Papads. They look great and can be served as snacks or appetizers. Just the thought of them makes our mouths water (the folks who have tried them will know what we mean!). Warning! – these can be very addictive, so make plenty!
Papads – 2, any flavor
Onions – ¼ medium, finely chopped
Tomato – ½ medium, de-seeded and finely chopped
Cilantro – 5 springs, finely chopped
Green Chili – 1 or to taste – de-seeded and finely chopped, optional
Lemon/Lime Juice – ½ tsp
Chat Masala – ½ tsp
Salt – to taste
Red Chili Powder – to taste, optional
Roast the Papads on the flame or in the microwave (approx. 1 min. per Papad, cooked individually)
Let them stand for a couple of minutes and cool down to get crisp.
In a bowl mix – Onions, Tomatoes, Cilantro, Green Chili, Lemon/Lime Juice, Salt and Red Chili Powder. Sprinkle mixture on the Papads.
Last sprinkle the Chat Masala and serve immediately.

How much ahead of time do you think this can be made for a party? Thanks
You can roast the papad well in advance (a day or two). Make the topping a few hours earlier but don’t add any salt until you are ready to serve.
The above mentioned “masala” mixed with regular store bought peanuts and served immediately, also makes for a great appetizer.
That is right, it is also know as Raja Special. We have a recipe for it:
What is Chat Masala by the way?
It is a combination of different spices including dry mango powder, black salt, black pepper, etc.
You can get this chat masala at any Indian Grocery store, if you have one, or the alternative is to mix all hot spices like black pepper, cloves, bay leafs and others into a powdered form!!
