Video Recipe - Wholewheat Baked Papdi for Chat | How to make Baked Wholewheat Papdi for Chaat

It's absolutely true when they say necessity is the mother of invention. Being Chaat lovers at home, we frequently indulge in quick, healthy, sumptuous chaats as snacks and sometimes as dinner too (Think Ragda Patties / Chole Patties etc). Keeping the chutneys - Red chilli garlic pasteGreen chilli Chutney and Dates - tamarind chutney  (a.k.a Teekha - Meetha Chutneys) becomes very handy to make quick chaats

 to Taco Bhel to Kutchi Dabeli to Dahi Moong Chaat (GF) , Chaat is something the kids and elders love at home .

I had made Sev Puri several times (even with the deep fried Papdis) made at home. But with this lockdown, I had to make the Baked Papdis - something on my bucket list for a while. 

Adapted from Swati’s recipe (who incidentally also suggested the theme for this week’s FMBH “Chaat Time”), this was a breeze. Thanks much Swaty for this wonderful, homely way to bake the papdis for the chaats

Not just for Sev Puri or Sev Batata Puri, this became a great go-to snack for those 4 pm hunger pangs, and I see this becoming a healthy base snack like canapés. The husband added some boiled potato and moong sprouts and some schezwan sauce to make his own fusion sev puri last week. 

 I made a second batch while shooting the video, and full credit to my little one who helped me with the over head shoots (while balancing on her tiny wooden stool next to me).    

I have made few minor changes from Swati’s recipe. Do watch my video below, subscribe to the channel and leave your comments on this blog as well as the video.
