  • Mix maida, sooji salt and ajwain or kalonji seeds. Add oil and rub it so that it is incorporated in the flour properly. Knead a firm dough with help of lukewarm water.
  • Cover the dough with a wet cloth and set aside for 20 minutes to half an hour.
  • Take a small ball of dough and roll out a big circle on rolling board with help of rolling pin.
  • Now using knife cut the circle of dough into long strips  except on the ends as shown in the picture above.
  • Prick with a knife or a fork all over to ensure papdi do not puff while frying.
  • Now fold one end in Japanese fan fashion and press to fix it up. Repeat for the other end.
  • If you are finding the above procedure confusing then you can also simply roll dough ball into thin chapatti, prick all over with a knife and cut it into square pieces.
  • Heat oil in a kadhai on medium flame. To check the right temperature of oil put a pinch of dough into the oil. The dough should sizzle immediately and come up on the surface of oil slowly.
  • Dip the papdi  in oil. After some time it will come up the surface slowly. Remove the papdi from oil when it is light brown.
  • Soak the excess oil of papdi in a tissue paper.
  • Let the papdis cool at room temperature. Later arrange the papdis on the plate. You can also store these papdis for a month in an air tight container.
  • Now spread beaten curd on the papdi.
  • Add some boiled potato pieces ,chickpeas and chopped green chilies.
  • Add imli chutney or pudina -dhania chutney or both.
  • Sprinkle chaat masala, red chili powder, kala namak, roasted zeera powder and salt as per taste.
  • Finally garnish papdi chaat  with finely chopped coriander.
