Masala Papad

Valentine’s Day is a week away and its that time of the year when each one of us are scouting for surprises to impress our loved ones. Cooking is the most common idea that most husbands stumble upon for their ladylove. Yes, we are writing up 3 recipes that are easiest, easier and easy for all you husbands out there to make the evening special for you better half. Here is your chance to make your wife feel proud and loved.

This is the ‘easiest’ recipe, for the people who got this ‘husband’ tag recently and are still getting used to the identity: the newlyweds. Masala papad is a favorite snack of many and boy o boy this is what you need to get them ready:


Small papads, fryums (preferably the potato flavored ones) 10-15
Onion 1
Coriander 4-5 strands
Refined cooking oil 1 cup
Red chilli powder 1 tsp
Chat masala 1 tsp
Salt to taste


Most of these ingredients are available on your kitchen shelves. Look for the chat masala and the packet of papads.

Peel and chop the onion and chop the coriander fine. (Please be careful with the onion)

Heat the cup of oil in a kadai/pan (bandli/mookudu) and deep-fry the papads/fryums. Remove onto a tissue to drain out excess oil.

Place the papads on the serving plate. Sprinkle the chopped onion, coriander, salt, chat masala and red chilli powder. Sprinkle a few drops of lemon juice just before serving (optional).

(For the cleaning, please throw all the vegetable peels and set the kitchen. The oil is hot; do not touch it for now. Your wife will take care of that)

Enjoy the masala papad with a few chillers and make this Valentine’s Day a spicy one.
