Crunchy to the core, and as tongue-tickling as a snack can get! The Masala Khichia Papad is a scrumptious snack of crushed papads topped with chopped veggies, peppy chutneys and of course, crisp sev. When all these merge together in one mouthful, the experience is just too exciting. Keep all the ingredients ready but prepare this just before serving otherwise the papad will get soggy with the juices of the vegetables and chutneys.


Papad 4 (khichiya papads (readily available in the market))
Melted butter 6 Teaspoon
Finely chopped cabbage 8 Tablespoon
Finely chopped onions 8 Tablespoon
Finely chopped cucumber 8 Tablespoon

Salt To Taste
Green chutney 4 Teaspoon
Garlic chutney 4 Teaspoon
Nylon sev 4 Tablespoon
Lemon juice 2 Teaspoon



Roast a khichiya papad on an open medium flame till light brown spots appear on both the sides.

Allow it to cool slightly, place it on a serving plate and press in the centre it with your palm to break it into pieces.
