Masala Papad/ Chilli Papadum

Today I will share with you the recipe for Masala Papad/ Chilli Papadum which is a personal favourite and a great appetiser before any meal. I initially came across this fabulous concept when I first visited India in 1998 and have found that restaurants in India (especially Mumbai) have made this one of their welcome snacks!

(serves 2 people)


2 ready made papadums
0.25 vine tomato (washed and finely chopped)
0.25 green pepper/ capsicum (washed, deseeded, 'de-pithed' and finely chopped)
0.25 medium-sized red onion (washed and finely chopped)
0.5 tsp ground cumin powder
0.5 tsp sweet pimento powder/ red chilli powder
0.5 tsp salt


1. In a bowl, mix together all of the ingredients (apart from the papadums) just before you are about to serve the papadums.

2. Top the baked papadums with the fresh, spicy, chopped vegetables. Don't leave the vegetables on the papadums for too long otherwise they will make the papadums soggy.

3. Serve and enjoy!

So there you have it! A delicious new recipe for you to try! ... Please let me know how you enjoyed the masala papads/ chilli papadums!

Bon appetit! xx
