Papad ki sabji

BM#6 Day 6


Papad is known as Papadum in english. Papad is  made from the various lentils. Papad recipes vary from region to region. I call it as a savior curry or 5 minutes curry. Whenever I come back home from a long trip and don't have any fresh vegetables in the home, and also bored of eating outside food and frozen food. This curry saves my day. I also like to make this curry when it is raining outside. Try it, its something different and easy to cook.


  • 5 papad (papadum)
  • 1/4 cup curd
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tea spoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 tea spoon minced ginger
  • 1 green chilly
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seeds
  • 1 teaspoon coriander powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon red chilly powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon turmeric powder
  • pinch of hing (Asafoetida)
  • salt to taste(keep in mind,papad has already salt in it)
  • coriander(cilantro) for garnishing
  • 2 tablespoon oil.
