How to make Papri Chat


  • Sift flour, ajwain, salt in a bowl.

  • Add 2 tbsp of oil. Using both hands, rub the fat into the flour until the mixture resembles fine bread crumbs. Add a little water at a time and bind the flour into a soft, pliable dough. Knead it really well for about 5-7 minutes. Cover with a damp cloth and leave to rest for 15 minutes.

  • Divide the dough into two equal halves. Roll each half into large thin rounds. Prick all over with fork. Cut out 2 inch rounds from it with a round cookie cutter.

  • Heat oil in deep frying pan and fry a few at a time over medium heat to a crisp golden color.

  • Place ready papris on the serving plate.

  • Mix chopped potato, tomato, onion, chickpeas and paneer (optional).

  • Add the spices: cumin seeds, chaat masala and salt and paper to the taste. Place the mix on top of the papris.

  • Top with yogurt and chutneys and garnish with fresh coriander leaves.
