Masala Paapad (Microwave)

Tried and tasted by Nivedita 
Hi All,
Are you wondering why am I posting so easy recipe? Because its the favorite snack of my family. We love it any time. Earlier I used to fry the paapad in the oil or used to roast it on tawa or direct flame. But the fried paapad is not good for health and the roasted on tawa is not that tastier. Then I switched to Microwave. 
When ever we go out to have food in restaruants, we always order this one. But now a days often I make it at home. The advantage of making it at home is you can try different combinations in masala. 
Going to the recipe,

Paapad - 2 big size (I use Lizzat urad dal paapad, but the choice is yours)
Oil - 1 tsp or 
For Masala,
Onion - 1 small, finely chopped
Tomato - 1 finely chopped
Carrot - 1 medium, grated
Fresh coriander - 1 tbsp finely chopped
Lime juice - 1 tsp
Sugar - 1 tsp
Salt to taste
Mix all together and keep aside.
Chilly powder - to sprinkle on paapad

Brush the paapad with oil or water,(choice is yours) Both tastes different but good.
Keep the paapad  in Micro Wave on HIGH for one minute.
Repeat with other paapad.
Keep the paapad on serving plate.
Sprinkle the chilly powder evenly.
Take the ready masala and spread it on paapad. 
Serve immediately.
In my house before I finish spreading on the second paapad, the first one will be over!!

Paapad Samosas

Tried and tasted by Nivedita
Hi All,

Here It is raining continuously and too cold to keep the doors open. It is the perfect ti
me to eat some fried snacks with hot coffee!!
Sorry guys who are staying in the part of the world where the heat is on its height!!!
Now a days most of the cookery shows are full of fried food to compete with the weather.
So I too thought of posting the same.
This is the snack which has to be served immediately.
Here is the recipe,
Potato - 1 big(Boiled and mashed)
Carrot - 1 medium(grated)
Green chilly - 2 chopped finely
Coriander or Parsley - 2 tbsp (chopped)
Salt to taste
Amchur Powder(Dry mango powder) - 1pinch
Paapad - 4(big)
Oil to fry samosas.
Mix all the ingredients leaving paapads and oil.
Keep oil in a pan to hot. Cut the paapads in to four pieces with scissors. Take one piece and dip it in the water just for 3 seconds. keep it on the plate. Fill the ready masala in the middle. Fold the paapad carefully from all three sides. Close it applying the water on the sides. Fry immediately and serve hot with ketch up or sauce.
I am sending this to Shanti's (

Keep Smiling,
