Papad Roti



I found this unique recipe on the net...dunno exactly where. But as always I had jotted in down in my recipe book and stumbled upon it just a few days back. What better ocassion to try a roti recipe than now... when u have the mega Roti mela going on.......:D So here goes one more entry and say last entry from me for the roti mela....:) ( today is the last day..:(.... hmmm time runs so fast...)


My other entries to the Roti mela are

Roti ki Tokeri : which contains 6 different types of Rotis. ( Butter Paratha, Chow -chow roti, Stuffed rice paratha, Raw Banana Roti, Gobi - broccoli Paratha, Masala Aloo rotti )

Sago Rotti , Cilantro Stem Roti & Masala Oats Rotti hmmmm :)

So here goes my entry. This roti tastes very nice and tasty. I thought the filling would be crispy...but my hubby said it didnt taste like it had a papad filling...hmmm.But who cares.....it did taste very very yummy...! And I am surely gonna make it again..:D. I used a plain papad to make this and added masalas to it. If ur using a spicy masala papad... becareful of the extra spice that u add.. u dont want to ur tongue to be on fire right?

You need :

Wheat flour dough

For the filling:

Plain Papad - 4 (roasted on a gas or microwave)
Red chilli powder - 1 tsp
Amchur powder - 1 tsp
Green chillies - 1 finely chopped (optional)
Fresh mint leaves - 2 tsp
Chaat masala - 1 tsp
Ghee - 1 tsp
salt to taste


The papad mixture for the filling



Method :

Another stuffed paratha from me. I love having stuffed paratha and this one is pretty easy stuffing to make.

Take a big bowl and crush the papads and put it in the bowl. Add all the other ingredients in the bowl and mix it well. Now ur filling is ready.



Take the ball of the dough and roll it out into a small circle.Brush some oil on one side of the circle. Now, place some filling on the oiled side...in the centre of the small circle. Overlap the edges of the circle...packing the filling inside. Roll it out into a bigger circle and roast it on a griddle...pouring oil around it. Cook till brown spots appear on both sides.



****Variation :

As I said earlier... my hubby said that it didnt taste cruchy like the papad. I did figure out a solution for that which I will be doing next time I make this Roti.

- firstly dont completely crumble the papads and make them powdery. Keep some big pieces on.
- Take the dough and make a big roti. Keep it aside. Take some more dough and make one more big roti... somewhat the same size as the earlier one. Now spread the filling in the centre of the second roti...leaving a gap of 1 cm around the circumference, So that the filling doesnt spill out.
Place the other roti on top of it and press around the edges to bind it well.

Now, u can cook the roti on a griddle as above......:)



Enjoy this roti...:)

Hi Shubha,
yes i know this roti, once long back i saw in TV in India, where a guy took papad roasted cryshed and stuuffed inside the roti... nice one dear.. i was just thinking abt this one...

During winter, papad turns brittle and breaks when taken out of the pack. I used to collect the broken pieces of papad in a ziplock bag. Nice way to use those pieces. Thank you for the recipe.

Hi Shubha,
so happy to receive your comment :)
how are u.. after a long time..
actually you can substitute kokum with Tamarind, but you know.. sourness of kokum is more suitable for this recipe..and if you buy kokum from Indian store it wont get wasted, you can use it in any Dal instead of Tamarind.
